Start-up businesses can access help for everything from business planning, research and marketing to sales and finance to help make their idea happen. The place to start is The Growth Hub, who can put businesses in touch with the right support to help them grow.

“Everyone can get help to make their dream a reality” explains Kirsty Miles-Musgrave, Communications Manager for the Growth Hub. “This campaign is aimed at people who think that 2019 might be their year to start a business. Whether you are taking the first step to become self-employed or inventing the latest must have gadget, we can help. The prize draw will be an extra boost for one lucky person, but there is such a range of fantastic free business support available, everyone will be a winner”.

“Over the last two years we have seen over 1000 people with a business idea, with many now seeing fantastic success” says Matt Borne, Business Connections Manager.

“Being able to sit down with business experts and plan your ideas properly to avoid any costly mistakes is really essential. The prize draw for an impressive collection of prizes that will benefit their new business is just a bonus!”

If you have not already been in touch, call the Growth Hub today and if you book a free review for your new business idea you will get an entry into the draw.

RRL Partner Nick Skerratt explains why they are supporting the campaign,

“We know that starting a new venture can be daunting, especially with a lot of uncertainty in the current climate. We have grown our firm in Cornwall, so understand the business landscape and we can offer a guiding hand to help take some of the uncertainty away for those looking to get started with their business.”

The campaign runs until 31st March 2019, when the winner of the exclusive start up support package will be drawn at random.

The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is match funded by Cornwall Council, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership.
