“We got in touch with the Growth Hub to find out how they could support us with EU rule changes, business growth and staff training. The Growth Hub business advisor had a very good understanding of an entrepreneurial business such as ours. She provided us with access to peer networking, business advice and connections with similar businesses, and to council links.”
"I would recommend business advice and support to anyone. Running a business by yourself can be tough with no-one to bounce ideas off, and not knowing where to turn for advice and guidance.

“Covid-19 affected us quite drastically at the start. As time went on, because we work in education technology, we’ve seen a huge growth in interest and we’ve actually pivoted the business slightly based on the advice that we’ve had from the Growth Hub and they’ve been very supportive of how we’ve done that.”
