Coaching & training grants through Growth Accelerator Fund

The Business Growth Service offers support to businesses who have the right level of ambition, capability and capacity to improve and grow. The service helps businesses to achieve their full potential by identifying their barriers to growth and providing tailored support to fit their needs.

Each business will work with a dedicated Business Growth Manager who understands the challenges they face. They will discuss the companies needs and barriers to growth, identifying the areas of support that are right for the business. Where appropriate, businesses will have the opportunity to be introduced to relevant experts from other services that can further support their growth, including UK Trade and Investment, UK Export Finance, Innovate UK and local growth hubs.

  • access finance
  • develop new ideas and market them
  • build a business strategy and plan
  • protect intellectual property
  • build leadership and management skills
  • improve manufacturing processes and building supply chains
