We were delighted to see a record rise in the number of enquiries from start-ups and people intending to start a business this year.

For many, the beginning of the year can be incredibly miserable and January can seem like the longest month. For businesses, it can be a furiously busy time, catching up after Christmas, setting intentions, goals, and budgets for the year ahead.

Here at the Growth and Skills Hub, we spent the past month prepping for 2019 and were absolutely thrilled to see that the number of enquiries from start-up businesses and those wishing to start a business has increased by 50% compared to the same time last year.

What do we do?
The Growth Hub works with local businesses, to help them get where they want to be. We’re like a fresh pair of eyes, an independent view to help businesses become more efficient, attract new customers and grow. Even as a successful company, with a free Business Review we can signpost you to support for everything from strategy and leadership to marketing and finance.

The Skills Hub can help you develop your staff team by giving them the skills they need to help your business thrive. With a free Skills Review we’ll uncover the skills that your business needs, then using our expert knowledge we’ll introduce you to the right, cost-effective training for your team.

If you are a business looking for some help to grow or to upskill your team, we’d love to hear from you.

Not yet got a business but thinking of starting one? Or started your business last year? Then we’d love to help you too and if you book a review with us by the end March, you will be entered into our prize draw which includes £8,500 worth of prizes.
