Spread the Word about business support and WIN!!

The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth Hub have launched a prize draw to win an exclusive package of business support* worth £3250.

The Spread the Word campaign aims to get people sharing their business support experiences and the impact it has had on their business, so other business owners don’t miss out.

The prize includes:

  • A Cornwall Council Rover pass for one year’s free parking
  • 12 month membership of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce
  • 1 year free membership of FSB Connect networking and events
  • 1-2-1 mentoring support from Unlocking Potential
  • Business diagnostic and action plan from Oxford Innovation
  • Advice from Cornwall Council Business Regulatory Support team
  • Social media video production from The Growth Hub

Businesses can access help for everything from leadership and marketing to sales and funding, and even if you have a business idea and want help to get it up and running. The place to start is The Growth Hub, who can put businesses in touch with the right support to help them grow.

“People trust recommendations from their friends” explains Kirsty Miles-Musgrave, Communications Manager for the Growth Hub. “This campaign aims to harness our existing clients as ambassadors for the fantastic business support opportunities available and encourage their contacts to benefit too”.

“We have such fantastic feedback from the businesses that we speak to” says Matt Borne, Business Connections Manager.  “Businesses tell us that speaking to the Growth Hub was a great opportunity to get a fresh perspective, stepping back from the day to day operations and thinking about where they want to grow.”

“So we are confident that businesses will jump at the chance to recommend us to their suppliers, customers and even their own friends and family. Getting put into the prize draw for an impressive collection of prizes that will benefit their business is just a bonus!”

If you have not already been in touch, call the Growth Hub today and then tell all your friends. If you both book free business reviews you will both get an entry into the draw.

Kim Conchie Chief Executive of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce said, “We have a really supportive business community in Cornwall, where people want to see each other do well and grow, so spreading the word about business support opportunities makes perfect sense. Getting a bit of help for a new enterprise, or an established business always gives them a boost and in turn this will help develop the local economy, so we were happy to support the prize draw with a year’s membership of the Chamber.”

The campaign runs until 31st August 2018, when the winner of the exclusive business support package will be drawn at random.

The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is match funded by Cornwall Council, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership.
