Business Advice Service

Whether you’re thinking of starting a business, at the early stages of a new venture or growing an established business, our Business Advice Service can provide support to help you achieve your goals.

Our fully funded service is delivered by a hugely knowledgeable team of business advisers who have amassed many years of experience advising, running and owning businesses of various sizes across many sectors and business disciplines.

How we can help?

  • You will be allocated a dedicated business adviser who will remain in contact with you during your growth journey.
  • We will conduct a 360 business review helping you evaluate the challenges and opportunities you face in your business.
  • Following the review, we will work with you to create a Business Support Action Plan, which will outline and refer you into the most relevant business support.
  • Your business adviser will add value through access to their extensive networks, business insights and sector/subject specialism.
  • You will get priority access to our business clinics and networking events, which are held across the county.
