for Growth:

A fully-funded programme to help local businesses achieve long-term, sustainable growth.


Spring is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. It’s also the perfect time to take a step back, reconsider old ways of working, and perhaps try different approaches to overcoming old problems. It’s time to get back to work, but that doesn’t have to mean business as usual; It’s time to get back to growth.

Join SEMLEP’s Growth Hub and Digital Remit for Foundations for Growth. This fully-funded programme consists of an in-depth, one-to-one business review developed in conjunction with Grant Thornton, pre-recorded lessons, live online events and group discussions, all geared towards helping your business achieve long-term, sustainable growth.


A deep dive into your business

As an integral part of the programme, you will receive a one-to-one, in-depth review of your business, conducted by one of SEMLEP’s Growth Hub’s Business Advisers and using a toolkit developed in conjunction with Grant Thornton.

This will cover a wide variety of subjects, including finance, operations, marketing, and HR. It will also examine where your business is now, where you want it to be, and suggest ways of getting there.


To see if you’re eligible and to register, contact one of our business advisers today!
