Get Growing 2: Getting Your Business Back on Track for Growth



Our Get Growing 2 service supports local businesses that are ready to grow again. It is fully funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and offers a package of tailored support to businesses, helping them to become more profitable, competitive and grow.

To be eligible for this support you must:

  • Be an established SME (including third sector organisations, social enterprises, and trading charities) in Hertfordshire
  • Have five or more full time equivalent employees
  • Be able to demonstrate potential for growth
  • Or be able to demonstrate potential for growth following support to stabilise the business and help minimise the impact of COVID-19


Eligible businesses are supported by an experienced Growth Account Manager. They will work closely together reviewing all aspects of the business, looking at the challenges and opportunities that exist to produce a realistic growth plan for the business. Areas where additional support will benefit the business are also identified, as well as providing access to all the benefits the our website has to offer, including on-demand videos and live webinars.

Businesses can also access a match-funded grant enabling them to seek external expertise to implement growth actions with specialists in the private sector. The grant has recently been increased to offer between £3,000 and £10,000 to fund 45% of a business’ eligible expenditure.

We work with a wealth of professional organisations and business support services, both locally and nationally, to provide relevant, up-to-date business advice. The Growth Account Manager will also help businesses to navigate their way to any additional support, enabling the business to focus on what really matters - getting back on track for growth.
