Geneyus is delighted to announce the launch of the Northamptonshire Growth Hub – a partnership between the University of Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership and Northamptonshire County Council. Geneyus is proud to be selected as a key delivery partner in the new service.
Designed to meet the specific needs of businesses in the local area the Northamptonshire Growth Hub has been set up to boost economic growth in the county and improve coordination between local and national support providers. The Growth Hub provides businesses in Northamptonshire with a single telephone number and a single email address that gives them access to a comprehensive, high quality support service.
Free-to-access, the service is available to all sizes and types of businesses and social enterprises. Whether you already run a business or you are thinking of starting up a new business in the Northamptonshire area, the Growth Hub can support you.
The recent Small Business Survey published by the Government showed that 30% of small businesses did not know where to find additional advice and support to help them overcome problems in their business or to aid them in the growth of their organisation. As a result, the Northamptonshire Growth Hub has been set up as easy-to-access, high quality gateway service for all the business support activities in the county.
Director of Enterprise, Geneyus, Malcolm Williamson says:
“The Northamptonshire Growth Hub is a new and dynamic initiative, having the potential to significantly impact on economic prosperity and business growth in the County. I am therefore delighted that Geneyus, a University of Northampton-owned business, is an integral part of the Northamptonshire Growth Hub proposition, and we look forward to working in close collaboration with our delivery partners, Northamptonshire County Council and the Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership, in helping to drive the future of the business support landscape.”
Nick Petford, Vice Chancellor, The University of Northampton comments:
“We in the county are extremely proud of this partnership and we are proud of the fact that we have used our own initiative to launch a business support service which is dedicated to Northamptonshire. We are determined to support Northamptonshire’s existing and new businesses. Northamptonshire is a great place to live, work and in which to invest. The new Growth Hub is just one way in which the county’s partners are delivering transformational improvements.”
Tim Bagshaw, Head of Investment at Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership concludes:
“The Growth Hub reflects the county’s innovative approach and commitment to supporting businesses and is set to become an important resource for enterprises in Northamptonshire. The county is at the forefront of the UK’s economic recovery and with 50% more business start-ups than the national average, nurturing growing businesses is central to this continued growth.”
