Business Gateway Growth Hub

We help businesses in Leicester and Leicestershire understand what business support is available to them and how they can access it as easily as possible.

A team of business advisers with industry expertise provide free and impartial, one-to-one, tailored support and guidance usually starting with a frank, open and honest discussion with the business owner or manager.

If you are looking to grow or develop your business or are facing some challenges contact the Business Gateway for support. See how we've helped local businesses through our success stories.
