GrowthAccelerator will deliver expert business insight and expertise in whatever areas you need. High Growth businesses will have to pay towards support but it is heavily subsidised.
The service is available exclusively to small businesses in Englandwho can demonstrate the ambition and capability to deliver substantial business growth. The cost will be £600 for start ups and up to 10 employees; £1500 for 11 to 50 employees and £3,000 for 51 to 250 employees.

Growth Managers will be responsible for identifying ambitious, high growth potential businesses and matching them with Growth Coaches. Each business will receive tailored support to overcome barriers to growth, exploit opportunities and achieve their full potential.
