The D2N2 Growth Hub Launches Phase 2 of the Peer Networks Programme


The D2N2 Growth Hub Launches Phase 2 of the Peer Networks Programme.

The highly successful Peer Networks Programme is set to re-run in the D2N2 area, led by the D2N2 Growth Hub and the East Midlands Chamber.

The Peer Networks programme works by bringing together individuals from different businesses to share ideas, discuss challenges and ultimately, develop and find solutions from peers. All Peer Networks cohorts are led by a skilled facilitator who is able to guide and lead the group. Following on from a successful phase 1 programme which supported almost 300 businesses, phase 2 will start from July onwards with the following groups:

  • Manufacturing
  • Hospitality and Visitor Economy
  • Creative Industries
  • Medtech and Life Sciences
  • Food and Drink
  • Women owned businesses
  • High growth businesses
  • High growth: leadership and management
  • High growth: women owned
  • High growth: sales
  • High growth: digital

The programme is available to any SME that has:

  • Operated for at least one year
  • At least five employees
  • A turnover of at least £100,000
  • An aspiration to improve
  • The potential to scale up or export or is exporting already.
  • Not already accessed the Peer Networks programme

We are delighted to be able to offer to businesses across the D2N2 area the opportunity to access the Peer Network Programme again. The impact phase one of this programme had in supporting businesses during a time of such uncertainty cannot be underestimated and as we move forward along the government roadmap, we are again able to offer support and guidance through this highly impactful programme, bringing businesses together to form long and lasting support networks – it’s a very exciting time!
