SMEs invited to contribute to North East Growth Hub

Following the North East LEP’s announcement that work is underway on the online business support Growth Hub, SMEs in the North East now have the opportunity to contribute to its development.

We are asking for businesses and organisations keen to play an active role in the development and testing of the North East Growth Hub to sign up by completing a short form.

A Beta version of the Growth Hub will be launched in late spring. Utilising the knowledge and expertise of the North East business community will be key to the Growth Hub’s success and businesses are invited to provide feedback on the ongoing development of the platform.

A small number of core functions will be in operation in the early stages of the project, with extensive further major developments of the Growth Hub taking place between May and September 2015. In the short term the project team is focusing on delivering specific functions that members of the business community can trial over the coming months.

Interested parties are invited to submit an Expression of Interest here. Escher Group, on our behalf, will be in touch with businesses that register interest so that they can be part of development of the hub. We are aiming to build a community of 2,000 active Growth Hub users by September 2015.
