The New Anglia Growth Hub, which provides face-to-face business support in Norfolk and Suffolk, hosted a special event at the Knights Hill Hotel in Lynn to highlight to business owners the free support that is available.
The hub is made up of eleven business growth advisers who work closely with business owners to help them achieve their growth ambitions.
There were also presentations from Growth Accelerator, the service to help businesses achieve rapid, sustainable growth; Barclays and the equity, crowdfunding organisation, Syndicate Room.
The New Anglia Growth Hub is supported by Norfolk and Suffolk Chambers of Commerce and New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, with the aim of drawing together a number of business support organisations to give business owners one place to go for advice and support.
The hub launched in June and aims to help 3,000 businesses by June 2015. To date, they have assisted over 1,230 businesses. More recently, the hub launched a new digital programme to help business owners gain access to high speed broadband.
Joint director of Lynn-based Anti-jack Vehicle Security, John Hornsby-Bates said: “We came along because we wanted to know more about the Growth Hub. We were very impressed with the support on offer. The level of coverage is simply phenomenal.”
