The Growth Hub and Circle2Success team up to offer more support to Gloucestershire businesses

The Growth Hub and Circle2Success are teaming up to offer more support to the Gloucestershire business community.

Circle2Success is a network of business leaders who support each other by sharing ideas and insights.

They aim to short circuit problems and develop alliances to add value to Gloucestershire businesses.

The Growth Hub intends to help those businesses accelerate their own growth and achieve their potential.

The relationship will aim to develop services that help businesses grow, working with members of the Circle2Success network to understand the common challenges in their organisations.

The Growth Hub will work with those business leaders to create, jointly, any business growth support that does not already exist within Gloucestershire.

Laura Crabb, pictured, director of The Growth Hub, said: “Part of what makes Gloucestershire great is the volume of ambitious businesses with high growth potential, all of whom we want to support.

“Suzanne Hall-Gibbins and Angela Edwards, the founders of Circle2Success, have brought a considerable number of these into their network over the past few years and are doing a fantastic job of connecting them in the process.

“We realised that our aims are very closely aligned and this relationship will result in a great deal more support for local businesses.”

Ms Hall-Gibbins, director at Circle2Success, said: “We are passionate about the partnership between education and business.

“One of the things we’re looking forward to is working with The Growth Hub and the University of Gloucestershire on is skills development.

“Lots of businesses struggle to get the right talent into their organisation and we can now make a difference by helping to develop outstanding graduates, who remain in county and go on to found or work in successful businesses.”

The Growth Hub and Circle2Success are keen to meet local businesses and encourage business leaders to get in touch.
