In addition to the Voucher Scheme, business in the Scillies can also sign up to a new service that brings together information in one place to help them identify other business support that is right for them.
The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub has been created in response to a common issue raised by businesses – that the range and complexity of business support available at a local and national level is far too confusing and time consuming to navigate.
The Growth Hub, which went live on 9th May 2016, provides you with a single point for accessing an extensive range of information and support you might need to start or grow your business. From information on how to set up a new business through to help with exports and access to finance, the Growth Hub will bring it all into one, easily accessible place.
Supported by a comprehensive website, a team of Cornwall based experts will be working directly with businesses to help them identify and access support in a way that is right for them. There will be a dedicated Senior Business Connector to work with businesses on Scilly and they will be attending the Voucher Scheme launch events across the islands.
Through the dedicated website, you will not only get access to a wide range of support information but will also be able to promote your products and services through the Business Directory, check out upcoming events and share your news.
Direct registration with the Growth Hub is available at: http://www.ciosgrowthhub.com
“The Growth Hub is a huge opportunity for businesses to access the support they need - through a service run by people who understand the challenges of running a business in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We have a hugely skilled, dedicated and passionate team that will be listening and responding to what businesses tell us they need to enable them to grow.”
The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Cornwall Council, the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills and the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership.
