Foreword

Since our creation in 2014 the Coventry and Warwickshire Growth Hub has become an essential ingredient within the business support ecosystem with demand for our services growing exponentially. During our last quarter, we have witnessed an increase in enquiries by 181% over the comparable period last year as businesses reconcile and reflect upon the impact of an ever changing market place and economic landscape.

Our engagements with businesses around the sub region have equipped us with the market intelligence we need to shape the services that we provide and are continually striving to connect those services in different and more innovative ways. Linking businesses to opportunity and growth is our core mission; doing it in a format that is accessible and understood is our objective on which we base everything we do. Our businesses have the potential to thrive through the development of new and innovative products along with access to new markets. The challenge is bringing these products to the market whilst at the same time delivering their core portfolio.

The Growth Hub shares the same ambition as our local businesses which is why we have been revising our digital profile to make our services meet your changing priorities. This online platform will see local industry experts from across the sub region partner with us to provide you with the very latest information on the issues that you want to be informed about.

We want to keep you up to date on the issues that challenge you daily from HR to financial planning, marketing to sales and from recruitment to skills. By hearing from the professionals who work with local businesses each day, you will come to realise that many of the challenges you face are not unique to your business, and I would urge you to take advantage of the expertise that is around you by regularly accessing the advice on here.

I am sure that you will find the channels’ content useful and informative; use it and share it to unlock the potential within your own business.
