The Hub provides businesses with advice and signposting on matters relating to business growth. This could range from finding partners or funding, through to identifying new opportunities, or engaging in rigorous business analysis.
We are fortunate to live in an entrepreneurial and imaginative work culture. Companies are crying out to grow and generate new jobs. Often, all that's needed is a new connection or the right piece of information at the right time - the Hub aims to make sure that businesses know where to go for that information when they need it.
It's amazing how many relevant funding streams are available, how many willing partners there are, and how little businesses know about what's available. With the Hub we can bring all the pieces of the jigsaw together in one place providing businesses with help and advice that delivers growth.
Bringing together education, governmental and private partners; the Hub provides a series of effective measures including face-to-face advice, a telephone advice service, personalised industry growth audits and matched industry investment funding to help businesses take the next steps towards growth.
