Hertfordshire Growth Hub

The Growth Hub is delivered, on behalf of Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), by a consortium led by business support services provider Exemplas with the University of Hertfordshire and Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce. Hertfordshire LEP receives funding directly from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), augmented by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and other funding as bidding opportunities arise to deliver the service.The Growth Hub guides businesses through a journey of support to help them progress. The service blends digital and physical support through a team of expert Growth Account Managers, and a soon to be launched digital business support platform. The platform will offer a range of tools and resources, which include an extensive Knowledge Bank, a wide-ranging directory of partners and supplier on their Marketplace and a busy calendar of events across the county.

Manufacturing Growth Programme

Amanda Freeland from the Manufacturing Growth Programme will cover the new funding available to Hertfordshire firms and how the grant can be used. Amanda has been involved in leading and delivering business support in Hertfordshire for 25 years, and knows how hard it can be for SME owners to find out about grants and other forms of support to grow their businesses. She’ll explain how to access support and grants in Broxbourne to part-fund expert advice, help with new product development, or pay for effective marketing to reach more clients
