Start Ups

If you’re a smaller early-stage business in Gloucestershire, the Growth Hub is the go-to place for essential advice, support, collaboration and networking.

Our programme of support for start-up and early stage businesses is changing…

Our Incubation programme has now come to an end and we will soon be launching an exciting new programme of business support in conjunction with the new SEED Fund programme.

The new programme will support companies (including early stage businesses) who can demonstrate high growth potential and who are looking to take on a number of new employees in the near future.

If your business is eligible you will be invited to apply to become a member of this exclusive group and access a range of benefits which will include focussed, high level workshops and events and be provided with high quality, bespoke business mentoring. We will also be expanding our office spaces to include larger spaces for growing businesses.

What other support is available?

We are still offering support to earlier stage start-up and lifestyle businesses who are not members in the form of regular ‘Essentials’ workshops which will cover key areas of business start-up and management to help you in the early stages. This is likely to include sessions on strategy, sales, marketing, law and finance and will be focussed on early stage businesses and their challenges. Details will be on our events page so do keep an eye out for more information.

Full details of the new programme, including costs and criteria, will also be available on the website over the next few weeks. If you would like to be sent an update when full details are available, please let us know.
