Boost for Local Business Growth

Trading conditions are tough for the business community in SE London, to survive and grow many companies are seeking to diversifying into new markets. To assist Greenwich and Lewisham businesses, the European Regional Development Fund jointly with Greenwich and Lewisham councils are from now until March 2011 funding a ‘Business Growth Programme’. Professional support designed specifically for businesses that are ready to grow right now is being provided by South East Enterprise (SEE) across a range of specialist areas.

SEE are delivering the support from local offices in Greenwich and Lewisham – Jeremy Hedger SEE’s Area Director commented
…….We have over 20 years experience working with and supporting local established businesses across south east London. Our experienced business professionals deliver in-depth support and advice which, under the Business Growth Programme, is completely free. So far under this programme we have supported over 150 local businesses, which has ranged from practical advice on tendering, seeking out new public and private sector contract opportunities, right through to one to one coaching and expert advice on sales, marketing, HR, e-commerce, accessing finance and financial planning……

The programme is tailored to the needs of established businesses in both boroughs; it provides a structured framework for them to achieve tangible results and maximise opportunities for new sales in the business to business sector. It aims to help local business owners and managers achieve the sustained growth and viability needed to create and safeguard local jobs.

Steve Nelson, Principal Director of the SE London Chamber of Commerce has endorsed the programme saying
…….This is a really great offer, many SELCC members in both boroughs have signed up and are already benefiting from the support. SEE’s specialist advisers work individually with each business owner or manager to set realistic and tangible growth targets, together they then work out a growth development action plan to achieve these within a set timeframe. My advice for any businesses wanting to grow now is to sign up to the Business Growth Programme – there is no charge and its strictly confidential….
