Delivering through partnerships

For the UK to achieve sustainable growth, we must work together to improve productivity.

Let’s work together for a stronger economy

Research and Insight

Collaborate with us on first-party research into the barriers and opportunities for a more productive UK. From academic research to direct small business engagement.

Innovative Interventions

Co-create and pilot ideas with us to deliver direct impact to UK businesses. We’ve already add £501m+ Gross Value Added (GVA) to the UK economy.

Powerful Programmes

Support the ambitions of your customers by funding places on our unique small business programmes. On average, your customers will see an 8% increase in productivity.

If every small employing business were able to maintain 1% improvements over a five-year period, this would add £94 billion to the UK economy annually.
