The New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership business support programme has reached two major milestones on its fifth anniversary, approving its 700th business support grant and engaging with 8,000 businesses through its team of dedicated business advisers.
The Growth Hub was set up in 2014 to provide free face-to-face business support. Since then, its team of expert advisers have engaged with 8,000 businesses, giving more than 40,000 hours of face to face support.The majority of the 700 businesses supported with grant funding applied to the New Anglia LEP’s two flagship funds, the Growing Business Fund and Small Grant Scheme. These programmes have approved more than £28m in grants, helping create more than 2,700 jobs and leverage £182m in private investment.
The Haven Gateway Partnership is pleased to be working with New Anglia Growth Hub (and its parent New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership) on a range of projects to support economic growth, including TALE.
