Everything starts with our unique Business Navigator service. We’ll work closely with you to understand your individual needs, goals and aspirations and talk to you about your business to identify your challenges and areas of growth potential.
Then, depending on what we discover, we’ll either put you directly in touch with a Growth Hub Partner who will provide products, services or expert industry advice in specific areas such as marketing, sales and strategy. Or, we might connect you to a national business support service via the Department of Business Innovation and Skills or you could be introduced to one of our Business Guides.
Our Business Guides will work with you on a more in-depth level and work closely with you to develop a tailored growth plan delivered over a period of time. Business Guides pride themselves on developing deep, long term business relationships which mean we can support you to respond to any emerging business challenges or develop further opportunities for growth.
The Growth Hub base in Gloucester is a great space to visit, work or bring clients for meetings. You can drop in at any time, and use our open plan work area – it’s a great way to meet some of our team and seek support. We also have learning space and meeting rooms, incubation pods for start-ups and Skype booths which are bookable for video conference calls.
The Growth Hub team and GFirst Local Enterprise Partnership are based in the Hub, bringing together a fantastic range of skills and expertise, local, national and international business connections and the resources and capability to build innovative business support services.
Other Hub residents include academics from the University of Gloucestershire’s Business School and School of Computing & Technology, and student creative business ‘Re:Fresh’. We also welcome visiting tenants who use the Growth Hub to offer advice sessions including UK Trade & Investment, Manufacturing Advisory Service, Innovate UK and Growth Accelerator, plus local professional services such as accountants, banks and lawyers.
As well as providing an inspirational meeting place to support, challenge and develop business plans, The Growth Hub is also able to provide online and telephone services – providing access to The Growth Hub wherever you’re based.
The Growth Hub invites all ambitious companies to take advantage of the knowledge, advice and tailored services available, and join the 26,000 other businesses, and start-ups, in Gloucestershire who are adding to the sustainable growth of our economy.
Come in and see us for an informal chat or get in touch by phone on 01242 715400 or email for more information and advice.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Growth Hub.
