If you are looking to expand and grow your business there is help and funding available from the Cumbria Business Growth Hub. The project is open to businesses primarily looking to create new jobs, safeguard jobs or increase their gross value added by more than 5% per annum.
The package of both funded and paid for services includes: access to the Growth Hub Web Portal where you can source information specific to your business needs, one-to one general and specialist advice, an Action Plan Implementation Subsidy to fund your growth plan, networking and training events, support from the Growth Hub’s many local, national and international partners, access to physical hubs located around Cumbria and referrals to other programmes and projects.
Julie Osborn and I met with Emma Blaney, Project Co-Ordinator and Suzanne Caldwell, Enterprise Development Manager, both from the Chamber of Commerce who shared with us the detail of the project which plans to run until mid 2015. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund up to £2,500 per business is available. Myself and Julie are approved specialist advisers available to support the implementation of an agreed action plan.
If you would like to know more about the project or if you think you could benefit from the one-to-one advice and funding available please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
