Don't miss University of Gloucestershire's event for high growth businesses

There is still time to register for an exciting free event tomorrow (Tuesday) aimed at helping SME's with potential for high growth.

Up to 220 small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), who are based in the county and demonstrate their high growth potential, may be eligible for a subsidised business acceleration coaching scheme managed by the University of Gloucestershire.

Gloucestershire's Accelerated Impact Network Support (GAINS) project is a European Regional Development Fund programme specifically designed to enable ambitious small and medium sized businesses to realise their growth potential and accelerate their rate of business growth.

GAINS Project Manager, Geraldine McCullagh explained: "This is a really exciting Gloucestershire-specific support programme designed to take SMEs with high growth potential on to the next level in terms of increased turnover, job creation and the development of new products and services.

Businesses can find out more at a free event called 'Good to Great for Growth', hosted at The Growth Hub at the University's Oxstalls campus. Find out how you can increase your businesses' profit and productivity. It runs from 8.45am - 12.30 pm tomorrow Tuesday 14 November.

Geraldine added: "GAINS is aimed at Gloucestershire-based SMEs with high growth potential and they can reclaim 40% of the costs of four days of high quality business coaching from top quality coaches. In addition they will get access to free masterclasses that tackle the needs of local high-growth SMEs, an in-depth business diagnostic service and participation in business-to-business networking events."

Participating businesses should be based in Gloucestershire, meet the scheme's 'high growth potential' criteria and ideally be able to complete the coaching programme within six months.

The programme is limited to just 220 Gloucestershire-based businesses and interested companies and SMEs should contact Geraldine on gmccullagh@glos.ac.uk.
