Oxford Innovation now operating the Berkshire Business Growth Hub
Article by Oxford Innovation | 05.04.2017
From 1st April, the Berkshire Business Growth Hub will be managed by Oxford Innovation. Working closely with partners – GROW@ and the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce – we look forward to leading a new phase in the development of the Growth Hub.
The Growth Hub will continue to be the first stop shop for business support in Thames Valley Berkshire with a focus on enhancing and accelerating business performance, helping more businesses to take advantage of national and local support programmes, increasing jobs, raising levels of exporting, and contributing to delivery of the LEP’s Strategic Economic Plan for the sub-region.
With over 30 years’ experience in coaching businesses, we are focused on enabling Thames Valley Berkshire businesses to realise their potential through connected, high quality support and will be providing a two-tier business support service comprising:
- Light touch advice, resources and events via the Growth Hub website with physical Touch Points throughout the region, providing visibility and accessibility. The five Touch Points are Bracknell Enterprise & Innovation Hub, GROW@Green Park, Newbury College, Slough Aspire, and the Thames Valley Science Park.
- Provision of intensive 1:1 support and ongoing account management delivered by dedicated Business Champions to entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs who demonstrate high growth potential and operate in Berkshire’s priority sectors.
Over the coming months we will be working with partners and businesses to develop the Berkshire Business Growth Hub and make Thames Valley Berkshire a better place for businesses to operate. Keep an eye on these newsletters and the website for further developments and information about getting involved.
