Applying a rigorous and transparent academic approach to its evaluation, the Evidence Committee holds open calls for case studies to be submitted about programmes that have significant impact on scaleups. For the Scale-Up Report of 2014, this group analysed several hundred case studies and endorsed 29 of them: these are listed below. A further review of programme exemplars is being conducted in 2016 and the Evidence Committee will be calling for applications to be submitted.

The Evidence Committee will report on the number of of scaleup companies as a proportion of the business population (by UK LEP and devolved region) with a view to publishing results on a yearly basis and assess this against the five year plan.

The Evidence Committee members are Thomas Hoegh, Reid Hoffman, Martha Lane-Fox, Tamara Rajah, Linda Rottenberg, Professor Peter Tufano, Tera Allas, Caroline Daniel, Anders Hoffman and Professor Dan Isenberg.
