There is no way to chase up your visa. You only must wait to hear back from UKVI. The processing time varies depending on your application which is from few weeks to several months (8-9 months or even more) You must not plan travel until you hear back from Home Office. :!:

Sadly you can't chase them or speed the process up not matter what your circumstances are or how urgent it is.

The best you can do is call them, quote your reference number received in your acknowledgement letter, but keep in mind that all you are going to get is "your application is in process" with absolutely no indication as to when it could be ready.

All you can do is wait...

Delayed application are now normal occurrence for Tier 1 entrepreneur application (new/extension)
You can discuss your case with your MP to follow up with UKVI on your behalf. My MP assisted a lot with fast and accurate update throughout the period that my application was pending with UKVI.
I wish you all the best. Hopefully, it will end well :D
