GrowthAccelerator is now part of the Government-backed GREAT Britain campaign which seeks to highlight support for businesses aspiring to succeed and to encourage entrepreneurial spirit.
Recently, I have received a number of enquiries asking if the GrowthAccelerator service has ceased and if so, whether or not we know of any other funding initiatives. I just wanted to clarify the situation as the GrowthAccelerator service has NOT ceased and is now part of the Business Growth Service, a government-backed service offering support to businesses with the potential to improve and grow.
The Business Growth Service
The Business Growth Service brings GrowthAccelerator, the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) and schemes from the Intellectual Property Office (IP Audits) and the Design Council (Design Mentoring) into a single service. Export support is provided by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and UK Export Finance (UKEF). The service is closely linked to InnovateUK and the British Business Bank.
The Business Growth Service is aimed at businesses with the potential to improve and grow, based in England, with fewer than 250 employees and a turnover of less than £40m.
