A business hub has celebrated its first anniversary and is to continue providing support for companies.
The Hertfordshire Growth Hub has supported over 500 small and medium-sized businesses since it first launched, with almost 200 businesses benefitting from advice provided by the hub’s specialist team.
The hub focuses on supporting established businesses to help them achieve growth. Hertfordshire-based businesses have the opportunity to work with industry experts in areas such as finance, innovation, HR and technology to help them grow their business.
The service, which is described as “powerful, targeted, impartial and completely free”, also gives businesses the chance to get involved in a variety of events.
The hub has already organised a programme of events for businesses throughout the year to give them an insight into a wide range of topics.
The most recent event was “Building your leadership culture”, which took place on 28th April. Businesses will have the chance to attend a free event, “Grow your consultancy business”, on 12th May, and “Raising finance”, a seminar scheduled for 25th May.
Speaking about how the hub benefits businesses, Growth Hub Manager Amanda Freeland said: “We understand the challenges of growth, and we’ve got specialists who can help businesses overcome the barriers to growth in order for them to realise their full potential.”
M25 Marketing Head of Marketing David Zerny recently praised the hub, stating that “small businesses need all the assistance they can get”, and that businesses in the county are “fortunate to enjoy the support and expertise of Hertfordshire Growth Hub.”
