The Business Gateway is the “Growth Hub” for Leicester and Leicestershire. It aims to promote the uptake of business support by making it easier to find out what is available.  The Gateway is a single place to go for information and advice on local and national business support available across Leicester and Leicestershire.

The service is for any business, big or small, new or established looking for:

  • business support to start or grow a business
  • access to finance
  • business events and networking
  • new premises
  • staff development, training and recruitment

The Gateway aims to inform businesses of what support is available, help to diagnose their problems and connect them to the most appropriate form of support.

The Gateway offers a website packed with information, a local telephone signposting service, and face to face appointments with a business advisor who is available to conduct a business review meeting.  The Gateway is a partnership of public sector, private sector and university services dedicated to business support and growth.

To keep up to date businesses can subscribe to the Gateway to receive information about new business support services and funding as they become available.
