The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has launched a range of new support tools
Businesses have told government that it was hard to find the right support to unlock their growth potential, and that finding finance can be difficult.
The government's business support offer can now be found at the Great Business website
This provides advice and information on support available from government for all businesses and those thinking about starting one.
Businesses can browse the pages for help and inspiration, or use the My Business Support tool – developed with business users, for business users.
By answering a few questions, users can now quickly and easily get to the support that is most relevant to their individual needs.
In addition, the Business Growth Service is aimed at the 20,000 businesses each year that have the ambition, capability and capacity to take the next step on their growth journey.
The service brings together a broad range of expertise and offers a tailored package of support which can help businesses access the right finance, develop business plans and new products, build leadership and management skills, protect their intellectual property, streamline their manufacturing processes and break into new markets.
