Who we are
The Business Growth Hub is part of the Manchester Growth Company. The Hub was set up in 2011 and since then has helped thousands of businesses across Greater Manchester to grow, develop and reach their full potential.
We work with ambitious businesses that want to grow their bottom line, boost their profile, and create new business growth. Our key aim is to help people to think differently about their business and explore different ways of developing their company.
What we do
Our services are open to new starts-ups right through to well established companies. We offer a whole range of joined-up business services, from digital support to help accessing finance, and resource efficiency to tailored support for textile and manufacturing businesses. Our only criteria is that growth and job creation are a key part of the business’s agenda.
The Hub operates as a cohesive unit rather than a loose collection of different services and our teams work closely together, referring businesses to different parts of the Hub so that they get the full benefit of all our expertise. We’re in it for the long term too, offering on-going support to help businesses grow.
We don’t give out money, instead we help businesses to find sources of finance and match funding, whether it’s assisting with the paperwork for a bid, making introductions to venture capitalists or helping them prepare a pitch and become ‘investment ready.’
Our services are delivered by experienced business advisors, many of whom are sector specialists who have successfully set up and grown their own businesses, before joining the Hub for a new challenge and to pass on their expertise and insider knowledge.
We have a unique network of partners who are committed to helping businesses to grow. The network is designed to deliver both hands on help and virtual online support for businesses in the region.
