If you’re seeking business growth and are unsure on how to achieve it, our Business Innovation Workshop can help you plan an effective and successful strategy. The Innovation Workshop provides free access to academic expertise and industry knowledge, while receiving support in realising and achieving your business growth potential.
We recognise that SMEs from some regional community groups may experience unique barriers to identifying and accessing the specialised business support they need to achieve their growth potential. That’s why, in partnership with successful business leaders from many of the region’s diverse business communities, we’ve created the Growing You SME support programme which is delivered via workshops.
As your business develops it’s not uncommon to encounter new obstacles that get in the way of achieving your objectives. In partnership with the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership, we'll work with you to identify the risks and opportunities specific to your business and you'll receive consultancy alongside access to our specifically designed Enterprise for Success workshop which will cover a broad area of steps to growth, from strategy development to preparing your product/service for market.
