Free support to help early-stage businesses with high growth ambitions in Worcestershire opens for applicants

Is your start-up business projected to achieve significant growth? If your business is less than 2 years old and based in Worcestershire, Enterprising Worcestershire’s High Growth Activate Programme can help provide the guidance to achieve sustainable growth.

The programme consists of tailored one to one support, a series of workshops and peer sessions.

One local business that has benefited from the consultancy support is UV Hygienics.


Tom Field from UV Hygienics said: “What a pleasure and privilege it has been to be part of the programme. It really has surpassed my expectations in terms of content quality but also the positive impact I can see that it’s had on my professional development and the strategic decisions I have made for the business.”

To be eligible to apply, you must be a Small Medium Enterprise, have traded for less than two years and trade at least 70% business to business.
