Business Support

Growth Hubs

Growth Hubs are local and private sector partnerships led by the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs). They provide a mechanism for integrating national and local business support, so it is easier for businesses to access the help and advice they need to thrive and grow.

If you are looking for business support, access to finance or guidance, our local Growth Hubs are here to help.

Improving business support

The focus of our Growth Hubs is on improving information flows, linkages and quality across business support services in each South East LEP local area driving behaviours in the business support sector to make the market work more efficiently and effectively by providing impartial information to business about the services available and providing better coordination of existing offers.
