Growth Flag is excited to announce the addition of Edge Hill University to its growing Education client portfolio.

Growth Flag, an innovative online data intelligence tool, provides live data and insight that allows education providers to gain a greater understanding of their local economy and develop strategies that support economic development.

Edge Hill has rapidly become one of the region’s anchor institutions for addressing business scaleup. Its High Growth Innovation Sprint Programme is now formally endorsed by the Scaleup Institute and there is an increasing body of work focusing on scaleup themes coming from its SME Growth Research Group and Growth Observatory.

Edge Hill University will have use of the Growth Flag tool to support its research, sector profiling, and benchmarking activities, allowing them to understand in far greater depth those businesses, sectors and places with high-growth potential and growth challenges.

Growth Flag will also be directly integrated with the University’s CRM platform to enrich and update existing customer data and provide valuable live insight for use in their B2B marketing, communications and lead generation activity.

“Delivering research and business support services which are data-led is at the heart of the SME Productivity & Innovation Centre. Growth Flag offers us an excellent new dimension in understanding local, regional and national challenges and opportunities. We are looking forward to integrating Growth Flag to take our work to a new level.” Prof. Simon Bolton, Associate Dean and Director of the SME Productivity & Innovation Centre.

Richard Jeffery, Founder Partner of Growth Flag, said: “Growth Flag is an ideal tool for colleges and universities to understand their local economy and support sectors that have the highest growth potential, and we look forward to collaborating with Edge Hill University on this.

“The Growth Flag platform predicts and identifies growth signals before they happen which enables our clients to gain deeper understandings of the high growth businesses in their community and how they can support them with tailored solutions and opportunities. Given Edge Hill’s outstanding reputation for supporting scaleup potential businesses, we are delighted to have them as a client for our services.”

Developed through a partnership with social enterprise the Growth Company and data intelligence platform, Red Flag Alert, Growth Flag brings together Red Flag Alert’s background in data insights, with the Growth Company’s expertise in delivering inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth.
