Tech City UK has launched a new programme to help digital businesses expand – by providing them with direct access to expertise and advice from world-leading entrepreneurs. Launched on November 12, ‘Upscale’ is designed to accelerate the growth of 25 early-stage high-growth digital businesses.

The free government-backed pilot programme will include a series of workshops with leading founders from Europe and the US, including Skype’s Swedish co-founder Niklas Zennström; the former CEO of LoveFilm and chairman of Moo.com, Simon Calver; the co-founder and co-CEO of the video ad tech company Unruly, Sarah Wood; and the co-founder and CEO of the British property website Zoopla, Alex Chesterman. The advice offered by these coaches will particularly aid international expansion, according to Tech City UK CEO, Gerard Grech.
