Santander's Breakthrough programme seeks to identify the best entrepreneurial companies in the UK and help them achieve their full potential.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are pivotal to the success of the UK economy. According to Government statistics, SMEs account for 59% of private sector employment and almost half of commercial turnover. In short, SMEs are vital in terms of job and wealth creation.
Seeded within the SME sector are the economic giants of tomorrow. These are the companies that are not only trading successfully, but also growing rapidly. Such star performers have the potential to become major players in their industries, employing perhaps not just tens or hundreds of people but thousands as their businesses expand. Santander’s Breakthrough programme is designed to help businesses like these fulﬁl their potential.
Who is the Breakthrough programme aimed at?
The Breakthrough programme is aimed at businesses that have advanced well beyond the start-up stage to achieve a turnover of between £500,000 and £25 million per annum while posting growth of 20% or more in turnover, profit or employment.
Ironically, it is entrepreneurial companies like these, led by strong, ambitious management teams and underpinned by carefully considered growth strategies, that most often struggle when it comes to accessing funding and resources. Those of you who have led companies through a period of expansion will know that ramping up capacity, building market share and breaking into new markets usually requires not only financial support but also knowledge and skills that may not be available within your organisation. And here’s where the Breakthrough programme comes in.
Under this initiative, Santander seeks to identify and support successful, fast-growth SMEs as they work to break through to the next level. Funding is an important part of the package. Over the next few years, we aim to make £200 million available for investment in businesses that we see as ‘Growth Champions’. We will also ensure that any company selected for the programme will have access to some of the best advice and talent available, including businesspeople who have already established their own companies as market leaders on a national and global stage.
If the UK economy is to rebalance towards sustainable, private sector-led expansion, it’s essential that fast-growth SMEs be enabled to fulfil their potential. If your company fits the bill, Breakthrough could enable you to move forward. We have already begun conversations with companies identiﬁed as having Breakthrough potential. If you think your company meets our growth criteria, now is the time to get in touch. Contact us
