‘Survey: business gateway’ launches today to help shape the future of business support for Leicester and Leicestershire.

The Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership is gathering feedback from local businesses on the Business Gateway growth hub service.

‘Survey: business gateway will evaluate how successful the programme has been to date, the impact of the service and how the service could be improved.

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.

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

You can help us shape and improve the FREE growth hub service by completing ‘survey: business gateway’ here.


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.
