Grow your business

The Business Growth Hub is a community for businesses in Greater Manchester and the wider north west that have the potential, ambition and commitment to grow, from established and large businesses to SME enterprises.

Whether you need to access finance, want to expand your markets, develop new products and services, build your new business network, develop leadership skills, explore marketing opportunities, improve productivity or invent the next life-changing product, the Hub can help.

Delivering this help and support is an extensive group of partners, all of whom have been there and done it themselves, and are committed to helping businesses to grow. 

Joining the Hub puts you right at the heart of this proactive new business community, with all the opportunities that offers for your business.
