You’ll hear directly from Growth Hub clients about the support the programme has provided their business, the future of the D2N2 business support landscape and hear from an inspiring keynote speaker.

The D2N2 Growth Hub has been a fundamental business support mechanism for a wide variety of businesses within the area for over six years. Delivered in partnership with the East Midlands Chamber and several other local authority partners, the Growth Hub provides a wealth of business support which includes: one to one business consultancy, access to finance, webinars, action planning workshops, peer networks and signposting to further support.

This event will showcase that breadth of support and the impact that this has had on local businesses that are Growth Hub clients. We’ll also hear the inspiring story of our keynote speaker. Finally, you will find out about the future of the Growth Hub and how to access the support available for your business.
