Dorset Growth Hub – Here to help your business grow

November 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

| Free

What is the Dorset Growth Hub? Who runs it? 

How can it help me or my business?

How can I access free funded support from a team of experienced professionals?

Can I get access to grants to help my business growth?

Can I speak to someone face to face about my finances?

Can Dorset Growth Hub help me with my Marketing/Sales/Digital Capability?

If you have ever wondered about any of the above, then The Dorset Growth Hub can help you. We are coming to Basepoint Business Centre at Hurn to inform you on what free support is available to you and your business.

Now in it’s 5th year, the Growth Hub runs a programme of support in the form of workshops, 121’s and partnership working to provide you with access to knowledge, insight and expertise that can help you shape your business growth.

Our head of Digital Capability, Rich Burn, will be at Basepoint Hurn from 9:15am on 15th November. He will be doing a brief overview of what the Dorset Growth Hub has to offer and you will learn how to access the free EU funded support. This talk will happen at 10am. But please feel free to come and chat to Rich from 9:15am onwards.
