Business Resilience Programme - Ready2020

Now is the time when any business looking to protect itself, find new opportunities and grow during economic uncertainty; needs to ask: Are we ready?

Hertfordshire's Growth Hub, powered by Hertfordshire LEP, is running a series of workshop events aimed at boosting small business resilience. For your business to be ready for opportunities of a new decade, technological changes, next generation consumers, employees and investors, ready for trading in the EU even, it’s a lot of change that you can’t afford to ignore.

The Business Resilience Programme is a package of support that can equip you with the knowledge and resources to identify and seize these opportunities. It includes:

  • Free-to-attend interactive workshop roadshow
  • Guidance via experienced Business Resilience Advisers
  • Telephone business support services
  • One-to-one support for eligible* businesses
  • Helping you to identify issues affecting your business and associated risk
  • Providing tools to help you overcome identified business risks
  • Helping you to find resolutions to identified business risks

Hertfordshire LEP is working with London and South East LEPs, to deliver collaborative advice and support to business across all areas via their respective growth hubs. Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) are partnerships between local authorities and businesses, playing a central role in determining local economic priorities, undertaking activities to drive growth and the creation of local jobs.

Ready 2020 is a campaign to help small and medium-sized businesses in London, Hertfordshire, and the South East prepare for the changes which are coming in 2020. As Britain leaves the European Union, we want to make sure that businesses are well-equipped to take advantage of new opportunities. Ready 2020 is a joint initiative by the London Economic action partnership (LEAP), Hertfordshire LEP, the South East LEP and their respective Growth Hubs

*Eligible businesses are those that: Are established SMEs with a main trading address within Hertfordshire (no overseas parents); Have 10-249 employees.
The workshop is available to all SMEs based in Hertfordshire. Businesses based outside of Hertfordshire may be able to access similar support by contacting their local Growth Hub.
The Business Resilience Programme runs alongside existing Hertfordshire Growth Hub advisory services to provide a holistic approach to business growth across the county and you can request further information on any of our Growth Hub services or sign up to receive regular updates.
The European Regional Development Fund does not contribute to the intelligence or funding of the Business Resilience programme.
