We want to hear from Leicester and Leicestershire’s business community as part of survey: business gateway.

Survey: business gateway will evaluate how successful the growth hub service has been to date, the impact of the service and how it could be improved going forward.

Since its inception in 2014, nearly 5,000 businesses have contacted the growth hub for advice, with around 1,000 receiving intensive support with a growth hub adviser.

Whether you have called for advice, met an adviser or attended one of our FREE workshops, we want your feedback to shape the future of business support.

Local businesses can access expert advice and a range of support programmes through the business gateway, as well as funding opportunities and free workshops.


Here’s what some of our business success stories have said about the Business Gateway:

“Sometimes when you’re working inside your business it’s difficult to see where you’re going or know who the right people are to contact. Our Business Gateway adviser has opened doors for us that we didn’t think were possible”. Ash Shah – World Products Ltd

“We were put in touch with a Business Gateway adviser who came to our office and went through different types of available funding. We successfully applied for a grant that went towards the costs of our marketing activities. We’re now perceived differently in the market place as a professional business moving forwards”. Melanie Mee – Pyrotect Ltd

“It can be really valuable to speak to someone outside the business who can offer impartial solutions and support, as well as a structured report and on-going advice. The Business Gateway adviser has been so helpful.” Cathy Cliffe – Peppercorn Catering

You can still access support from the Business Gateway Growth Hub – we are expanding our offer to include an enhanced workshop calendar and grant funding opportunities. Sign up to our newsletter to stay up to date.
