Inspiring Growth - Journey to Success
Supporting the growth of SMEs in Worcestershire
Worcestershire Business Central deliver two independent but
inter-linked series of events. The aim is to provide information on
key issues to consider at various stages of growth in your business.
What is the “Inspiring Growth – Journey to Success“ Campaign?
Inspiring Growth is a dynamic business support campaign created by Worcestershire Business Central to discover the unique businesses in Worcestershire that have strong growth ambitions, an entrepreneurial spirit, and looking to maximise their opportunities in Worcestershire.
Worcestershire Business Central, the government-supported Growth Hub for the county, has been in contact and helped support over 4,000 local businesses to start-up or grow their enterprises. Utilising the support programmes the Growth Hub can already offer, Inspiring Growth will look to continue this support, whilst identifying the scale-up businesses in the County who will drive the economic growth for Worcestershire.
The Department of Business, Energy, & Industrial Strategy defines a ‘scale-up’ as an enterprise that is ‘experiencing significant growth rates in employees and turnover, over a number of years.’ The impact of creating more scale-up businesses will have an significant impact on the economy, with the Scale-up Institute reporting that a one percent boost would create an additional 238,000 jobs and generate and additional £38bn for the UK economy.
The Inspiring Growth campaign through a series of roundtables, scale-up support events, and much more, will discover the businesses that will boost the economy of Worcestershire and continue to highlight the County as a great place to do business.
