Huge array of business support on offer from the new-look HEY Business Growth Hub

The Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (HEY LEP) is calling on businesses and those thinking about starting businesses across our region to engage with the new-look HEY Business Growth Hub.  

Picking up from the success of the Humber Business Growth Hub, which closed on  31st March, the HEY Business Growth Hub will provide free and impartial support to  businesses throughout Hull and East Yorkshire.  

Using its team of business advisors and comprehensive website, the Growth Hub  can provide information and guidance on a wide-range of issues related to “doing  business” in 2021, such as Covid-19 information, Brexit-advice, and understanding  the ever-changing landscape of government regulations. 

The Growth Hub can also provide insight and guidance relating to national and  regional economic agendas including the move to a zero-carbon economy, flood  resilience and sustainable growth amongst many others.  

As well as this, the Growth Hub’s advisor team can also advise on business growth  and development, and offer signposting and brokering into other sources of business  support and funding covering such needs as skills, exporting, innovation, new  technology & systems, and much else besides.  

The Growth Hub has also inherited the #GrowMySME Programme from the Humber  Business Growth Hub. This programme includes specialist advisors, masterclasses  and workshops, as well as grant funding, which providers tailored support to enable  

SMEs throughout the whole Humber region to grow, to access finance & investment,  and to embrace digital technology throughout their business. 

All support provided by the Growth Hub is completely FREE for all businesses.  

Jon Brunton, Growth Hub Manager at the HEY LEP, said: “The HEY Growth Hub may be a brand new operation, however, we already have an experienced advisor team in place and a wide range of business support services ready to go. As we rebuild our regional economy from the impacts of Covid-19 and EU Exit the Growth  Hub will play a leading role in supporting our businesses to recover and thrive as we navigate out of the most challenging period in recent history.  

“The Growth Hub’s current set of services really do cater for all possible clients; from support for pre-start individuals and new-start-up businesses, through to wrap-around growth support for established business and exclusive support schemes for high-growth potential and scale-up ready firms. The Growth Hub advisor team are  ready and waiting to hear from businesses anywhere in the Hull and East Yorkshire  region regardless of their size, sector or maturity.”
