The West of England Growth Hub helps businesses in Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire to start, innovate, grow and thrive. It is hosted by the West of England Combined Authority and Local Enterprise Partnership and funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
The Growth Hub website –www.wearegrowth.co.uk – has been redesigned to make it easier for businesses to find out about available support. It provides information on a wide variety of topics including: start-up, employment, finance, sales, marketing, exporting and statutory regulations.
For businesses looking for more specialist help and advice, the Growth Hub Supporters’ directory provides an easy way to access a wide range of professionals, government programmes, training events and courses.
In addition to this, the Growth Hub’s engagement officers offer up to 12 hours free help and assistance over the phone or face-to-face. They can assess the needs and requirements of a business before signposting them to companies and organisations with the appropriate expertise to help them overcome any difficulties.
Growth Hub services are free to all businesses in the West of England and the level of service is the same regardless of size, sector or location.
