Support and training for growing local business
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Growth Curve was set up to support businesses to scale up and grow by providing university-led masterclasses for business leaders, meetings with business advisers and funding. The programme has been updated to support businesses at this time, taking into consideration the coronavirus business environment. The masterclasses are now online and funding is still available. If your business could benefit from a one-to-one with a Growth Curve business adviser, register your interested here.
The masterclasses are run in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire, Cranfield University and University of Northampton. They each provide a different syllabus that is tailored to the business stage and experience of the client attending to ensure maximum learning to bring back to the business. Your High Growth Business Adviser will work with you to identify the course that is right for you.
