Business Support inCharnwood
Businesses drive growth in our local economy and we recognise that there are often occasions when different types of support can provide a boost to a business. Equally, you might have great business ideas but are not sure how to start a business. Or, you might need information and advice about how to grow your business or need to access information about regulations that apply to businesses.
There is a wealth of information and support inititaives provided by the Business Gateway service for Leicester and Leicestershire. inCharnwood strongly supports the Business Gateway and recommends that anyone seeking business support and advice views its website as a first point of access.
We also provide business support information and inititaives which are specific to Charnwood.

Help to Grow Progamme
Are you a member of the senior management team at a small or medium-sized business based in the East Midlands? Do you want to take your leadership skills and your business to the next level?
Join other business leaders at the University of Leicester School of Business on the new, government-subsidised, Help to Grow: Management programme.
Help to Grow is a 12-week programme for senior leaders in SMEs which we are delivering as a leading business school accredited by the Small Business Charter and it is 90% subsidised by the government.
The programme combines a practical curriculum with 1:1 support from a business mentor, peer-learning sessions and an alumni network. It is designed to be manageable alongside full-time work and will support senior leaders to develop their strategic skills with key modules covering financial management, innovation and digital adoption. By the end of the programme you will have developed a tailored business growth plan to lead your business to its full potential.
The University of Leicester School of Business will shortly be running their 3rd and 4th Help to Grow intakes and currently have a few places remaining for our November and January start dates.
This course is also available at De Montfort University and is 90% subsidised by the Government. You can register for the programme at https://store.dmu.ac.uk/product-catalogue/faculty-of-business-law/short-courses/help-to-grow-management
