The Growth Hub Gloucestershire 'has never been stronger' as it launches business-friendly new website

The Growth Hub Gloucestershire's innovative new website allows users to personalise their business development journeys — with plans for an AI feature to allow 24/7, 365 access to business support and resources.

With a reputation for helping thousands of businesses to be successful over the past decade, The Growth Hub Gloucestershire is continuing its upward trajectory in 2024, offering the local business community better access to its services than ever before.

Having already almost doubled its team of business experts in the past year to improve the availability of its services across the county, the network is celebrating the launch of its all-new, user-focused website this May 2024, through which it aims to take clients' business development journeys 'to new heights' with a more personalised experience online.

The innovative new site features a dashboard from which business owners can request support — whether that be expert advice, 'been-there-done-that' mentorship, or booking onto training or events — with smoother navigation designed to make the experience simpler and faster.

Kimberley Seville, marketing and events coordinator for The Growth Hub Gloucestershire, said: 'Creatively designed and built by Gloucestershire brand and digital agency The Lines Group, our new website puts user experience front and centre, elevating our clients’ digital journey with The Growth Hub today, and in the future.

'Exciting new features meet familiar favourites for a more personalised experience and our commitment to overcoming digital poverty with the DAISI partnership, means it is accessible across a range of user needs.

'This is just the beginning; we’re already working on the next phase of website developments and have more exciting projects in the pipeline which will take users’ experience to the next level with 24/7, 365 access to our signposting services and much more.'

The network is also continuing to build on its range of support services, with 10 new experts having joined the team across hubs in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Cirencester, Tewkesbury and the Forest of Dean since 2023 — further enhancing its outreach, start-up, net zero and advanced engineering and manufacturing (AEM) services in the county.

The new developments come in a year that The Growth Hub celebrates 10 years since the launch of its founder hub in Gloucester, as well as its transition to Gloucestershire County Council at the end of the lifespan of the county's local enterprise partnership, GFirst LEP.

The Growth Hub joins fellow county business initiatives Invest in Gloucestershire and Made in Gloucestershire as part of the new Growth and Enterprise team at the council, headed up by former GFirst LEP deputy chief executive and one-time Growth Hub business guide, Dev Chakraborty.

Dev says it is 'business as usual' following the move, which will allow for closer collaboration with the local authority and former GFirstLEP initiatives for the benefit of Gloucestershire businesses.
