In 2013, we were called on by Connecting Cambridgeshire to deliver a series of business support services across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
Connecting Cambridgeshire is a local partnership driving economic growth by ensuring local businesses are making the most of the latest digital technologies, and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund. The funding is designed to provide business support activities, encourage innovation and deliver eligible SMEs with detailed advice on how they can realise the benefits of digital technologies. The initiative also includes grants for these local businesses to ensure they are able to fully take advantages of new opportunities they identify as part of this support.
Drawing on our expertise and credentials in unlocking business growth potential, we deliver a mix of workshops and one-to-one advice. Our role is to ensure that eligible businesses have the support they need in order to grow and expand their operations, and are poised to take advantage of latest digital technologies.
To date, we have supported over 560 clients in being approved for a grant and provided key business support to over 123 local businesses. We will continue to provide support until the end of March.
