Business support

We offer business support to help get you started and seeking advice, a business grant or loan, general coaching and mentoring support or simply worrying about the implications of Brexit. This is where the Heart of the South West Growth Hub can help. 

The Heart of the South West Growth Hub aims to simplify access to business support throughout Somerset and Devon. Enquiries can be about anything that a business may want to ask, such as:

  • information on new funding opportunities from grants or loans
  • tax advice
  • help with their expansion plans, innovation or export
  • events
  • different types of business support programmes¬†

You can also register your interests via the email to register interest with the Growth Hub Service or call an adviser on 0345 604 7047 and discuss your needs. The service is free of charge and there are a range of face to face workshops and clinics taking place at enterprise and innovation centres across the Devon and Somerset area.
