The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership
The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership drives activity to support business growth, create jobs and help people realise their potential. We are led by local business people working together with Cornwall Council and the Council of the Isles of Scilly to set the priorities for how our economy should grow. Our role is to oversee how best to invest over £1 billion of public, private and European funds in the local economy by 2020. Our goal is to lay the foundations for 20,000 new jobs and to exceed projected growth by at least 5% in this time.
Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth Hub
The Growth Hub will be a simple and streamlined way for businesses to access the support available to them. That might be funding, help with exports, training or start-up advice, to name a few. The Growth Hub is being developed by the LEP and its partners and will go live in early 2016. It will combine web-based resources with telephone support and a team of locally-based experts to help businesses navigate the support on offer. The LEP has set up an interim Growth Hub while the new service is commissioned. Businesses are urged to register their interest on the site so that when the Growth Hub goes live they can be contacted by one of the team.
