Since its launch in 2014, the Swindon & Wiltshire Growth Hub has supported 537 existing businesses, 49 start-ups, and 52 pre-start-ups. This project delivers a new, state of the art intelligent and interactive web site as a gateway to business support, and a place where people can get insight and information about starting and running a business successfully.
A place for business to grow
The Growth Hub is an exciting new online community developed exclusively for the businesses of Swindon and Wiltshire. The Hub directs businesses to a wide range of impartial business support and advice, as well as providing valuable insights, access to events, specialist programmes and funding to help businesses thrive.
A single gateway to support
The Swindon and Wiltshire Growth Hub provides a single gateway through which to access support, whether starting, running or growing a business. Using the Growth Hub you can find direct support from the telephone helpline or arrange a face-to-face meeting with an experienced and impartial Business Adviser.
A community for fresh ideas
Conceived as a collaborative platform, the Growth Hub provides the business community with a connected network in which to share ideas and information. Users can build your contacts, share news, events and opportunities or offer help to encourage other businesses to succeed.
