Enterprising West of England

New growth programme offers £4m of coordinated business support services to escalate business growth across West of England area.

The Enterprising West of England programme can offer businesses support at various stages of growth from initial registration, through to taking on their first member of staff or to first product launch. Businesses can enter the programme at any point and access each service independently of the others.

Different types of support available are:


Test your ideas, write a business plan and start your very own business. Our workshops and one-to-one sessions will help you understand what’s involved in starting a business and once you’re ready, we’ll support you in taking the first steps.

Improve or Grow

From workshops on marketing, finance or supplier engagement to resource efficiency sessions. Enterprising West of England is offering a range of business support activities in multiple locations so you can get the support your business needs at a location that suits you.

Get investment ready

Take your business to the next level and create an investment readiness plan, focusing on potential customer demand in the markets you’re hoping to break into. Identify, apply for and secure the money you need to generate sustainable growth for your business.

Scale up

It’s been proven that business coaching leads to great results, but good business coaching can be expensive, especially for a recently registered company or a small business with a tight budget. Take away the financial pressure with a Scale Up Coaching Grant and choose the right business coach to help you realise your goals.

Equal opportunity

A key objective of the Enterprising West of England programme is to provide equality of access to business support services, with specific activities targeted towards young people (18-30 years old), disadvantaged areas and ethnic minorities.
