Supporting Greater Manchester businesses 

There are around 105,000 companies in our area. But we want more! So we're making it easier to set up new enterprises, and are helping existing businesses develop and grow. We are working alongside the Manchester Growth Company (MGC) to bring trade, investment and growth to Greater Manchester and we're helping people get the skills and training they need to get started.

Business Growth Hub

The Business Growth Hub, part of MGC, was set up in 2011 and since then has helped thousands of businesses across Greater Manchester to reach their full potential. They work with ambitious businesses that want to grow their bottom line and boost their profile. Their key aim is to help people to think differently about their business and explore different ways to develop their company.
