Our dedicated Gateway advisers talk through your business needs with you, when we know what you need we connect you to:

  • Specialist business support
  • Experienced business advisers
  • Free business skills workshops
  • Finance opportunities (if applicable)
  • And so much more

Contact the Growth Hub Gateway team to talk through your business needs.

Meet the Team here. 

The Growth Hub supports small and medium sized businesses based in the South East Midlands area:  Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire.

At the start of 2019 we  merged ‘Velocity’ and our sister organisation ‘Northamptonshire Growth Hub’. The purpose of this is to bring our business adviser teams together into one single Growth Hub to provide one entry point for all businesses in the area looking for business support and advice. You can read a little more about this here.

If you have any questions about the merger or the new Growth Hub service, please contact us on or call 0300 01234 35.
