Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Grow your business with the Growth Hub

The Growth Hub – LLEP Business Gateway will be at Love Business 2019.  Come and find us on Stand T1 where our experienced business advisers will be on hand to discuss your growth opportunities.

We provide free, impartial support and advice to businesses across Leicester and Leicestershire. From funding opportunities to experts in business strategy, hiring and training or finding the right premises for your expansion.

We also help businesses develop skills and knowledge with our calendar of workshops that offer a range of topics including sales and marketing, business finance and recruitment.

Darren Woolley, Managing Director at Multi-Medix, was signposted by a Business Gateway adviser to funding from two partner organisations, to support his business’ growth. He said:

“I would recommend businesses approach the Business Gateway to find out what’s available. For me it was an eye opening exercise. I did not realise this support existed and it has opened up many avenues, not just for today but other opportunities in the future”.

Vikki O’Hara, Business Owner at Dozy Dog, said:

“I met a business adviser at Love Business EXPO 2018, just after I took over Dozy Dog.  I was looking for help with recruitment and manufacturing new products. Being able to talk through the issues and receive the support I did from the Business Gateway on strategic decisions has improved my business and my confidence”.

The Growth Hub was established in 2015 and has exhibited at Love Business EXPO every year.  The event is a fantastic platform for us to meet and connect with a wide variety of businesses that, otherwise, may not be aware of the Growth Hub and how we help businesses. We hope to open more doors for people like Darren and Vikki so other businesses can prosper too.

The event has always been well supported by the number of exhibitors and delegates that attend.  Visitors have lots of opportunities to make new contacts in addition to attending informative seminars. 

The Growth Hub supports all businesses across Leicester and Leicestershire and it is important we raise awareness of the free and impartial service we offer to support businesses with their challenges and growth plans. 

We want to be the first port of call to access funding and business advice to help our business community achieve their ambitions.
