Growth Hub

For years, there’s been a plethora of full and partially funded business support programmes around that have successfully confused business owners and deterred many from accessing valuable expertise on offer from Government and the public purse.

The Hive is fast becoming the physical home to the local Growth Hub; a free business support team based on-site alongside the Council’s Business Support Team, Central Government’s Business Growth Service (UKTI, Manufacturing Advice Service, Growth Accelerator, Design Council and the Intellectual Property Service) and the regional Inward Investment Agency all who regularly hot-desk on-site.

Our own staff are always on-hand to provide independent, confidential and free advice wherever they can and our planned programme of FREE business coaching and our extremely popular business coaching & learning events, seminars, workshops and Masterclasses are designed to give you and your business all the tools you need to grow.
