The Growth Hub was established by the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire LEP to play a major role in the drive for strong, sustainable business growth across the LEP area. It acts as the focal point for businesses that wish to grow, providing co-ordinated and cohesive growth programmes, business networks, growth groups and links to specialist information, advice and services.
The funding for the Growth Hub was secured from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund through Lancaster University, who led the creation of 15 new growth hubs across the UK.
Growth Hub Advisors
We aim to see an improved environment in which businesses can grow. The Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Growth Hub encourages different business support partners to work together to ensure that they put the needs of the client business first.
As part of the Growth Hub service, officers from the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce are available to provide face-to-face advice to local businesses and to signpost them to specialised support. If your business needs a helping hand to get onto an advice programme or to apply for grant aid, then a Chamber-hosted Growth Hub advisor will help.
