Business Support

Transcript of above Business Support animation video.

Our Devolution Deal has led to the creation of new, easier to access support systems for local businesses.  The  Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth Hub offers local businesses, or people thinking of starting a business, a single point of contact for accessing a wide range of information and support. Supporting any business, of any sector, of any size.

Since its development in 2016 the Growth Hub has supported 673 businesses to date (July 2017), with an aim to support over 2000 businesses up to 2018.

Having more control over how we support business, rather than adopting national systems, means we have been able to target help to meet demand in the most simple and effective way. 

Here are a couple of examples of success stories from businesses that have used the Growth Hub.

Better Business For All

During 2016 - 17 the BBfA team supported 7853 businesses and assisted with 620 business start-ups.
