Growth Support Programme

Are you an independently owned microbusiness or sole trader?

Are you looking for new ways to make more money and find new customers?

The support on offer from the programme, which is completely free to businesses in Devon and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), includes the following:

1. An initial 3 hour face to face meeting with one of the experienced delivery partner business advisers, resulting in a realistic growth plan for your business and areas identified where additional support will benefit.

2. After this initial meeting, you will be offered the opportunity to commit to a further 9 hours of free advice, which includes 3 hours of digital support, which aims to increase growth and business efficiency through digital means.

Other advice also includes:

Overall, the sessions have also helped me think less emotively about the business I’ve nurtured thus far (which is a fairly common fault with start up businesses I think) and be more objective, and hard headed, about it going forward. Utilising the growth programme is, as they say, a no-brainer! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.Ruth’s Real Food
