About us

Providing free business support, the Growth Hub helps local businesses to identify and connect with the right guidance and funding to maximise potential and overcome challenges.

Set up in 2014, the Growth Hub is the business support division of the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP).

Growth Hub works to build a strong economy by tackling barriers to sustainable growth and supporting job creation for the future prosperity of communities across the South East Midlands. A key part of this is providing support to businesses across our area which includes Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes.

We have a team of business advisers who provide coaching and guidance for businesses across the South East Midlands. Our business advisers have a wealth of experience in business, many successfully running their own businesses, and all have come from working in the private sector. Their purpose and passion is to provide impartial business support and advice to all who need it.

The team works to refer and match clients to suitable services for their needs, working closely with other business support providers in the area and nationally. We also inform businesses about opportunities such as funding, training, or exporting opportunities. Find out about the services we offer.


If you own or run, contact us today to talk about how we can support you. Your Growth Hub adviser will work directly with you to identify business growth opportunities, overcome obstacles, develop achievable action plans, and help you to track results against objectives and key milestones.
