Opportunities to Work with Dorset Growth Hub
Dorset Growth Hub is looking for tenders to supply services in the following area:-
Technical redevelopment of the web portal ITT – Web Portal – February 2017
WSX Enterprise’s position on Brexit
In light of the EU referendum outcome, WSX Enterprise would like to offer reassurance regarding both current and future delivery plans for the provision of business support. Whilst we are unable to predict the exact implications of Brexit, we will look to these as opportunities instead of challenges. Any current European projects/delivery and contracts currently under negotiation are protected as ring-fenced allocated funding, and will continue to be delivered until their original proposed end date. The ERDF programmes will also continue through the application process as part of the 2014-2020 schedule. With regards to the future, WSX management will continue to engage with the relevant Politicians and stakeholders, as well as clarifying what this outcome means for the businesses we work with across the South of England.
Dorset Growth Hub
Dorset Growth Hub provides local business information to help new, start up and existing businesses. It provides information to help with starting and growing businesses, finances, employment and skills information, contact details for support schemes and services, news from around the region, as well as a list of the training, seminars, and networking events available locally. This local information is supplemented with links to content on external sites such as www.gov.uk
The Dorset Growth Hub has been established to support businesses that want to grow, increase employment, improve the competitiveness of businesses in Dorset and encourage inward investment to the area:
- The ‘One Stop Shop’
- Growth Through Investment
Web portal, online advice and business navigators:
WSX Enterprise and the Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry have worked together with Bournemouth Borough Council in securing funding from the Dorset LEP, from the Regional Growth Fund. This funding has delivered an innovative and comprehensive business support programme for both new and established businesses and social enterprises in Dorset – the Dorset Growth Hub.
The Hub is a “one stop shop “– with a web portal, online advice and business navigators to help Dorset businesses identify and access relevant support. We also deliver a business growth programme with specialist advisors to assist businesses in key sectors that are looking to grow through investment, innovation and internationalisation.
- A telephone advice line 03454 586480 is available to all businesses in the county
- Business Navigators to provide one to one initial support and create bespoke support
- Workshops and clinics on relevant, topical and informative business topics and issues.
- Specialist finance support.
The Hub also awards grants when funding permits, and vouchers to businesses demonstrating growth potential. There is a vast range of business information available on an enormously wide range of subjects. Whilst we have a large range on this website we cannot hold all of this information on our site. However, we have added a wealth of links to other sources of help and advice. If you have any suggestions of local information which would be useful to add to the site, please let us know using the Contact Us form. You can also use this form if you would like to be kept up to date with local business information in the future.
We are keen to advertise local training, workshops or services which can assist with starting or growing a business on our Events pages. If you would like to take advantage of this service, please contact us.
