We can help your business grow and innovate through access to information, funding and connections.

By chatting with our Marlborough Growth Advisor you can find out what support is available to grow your business. Our Growth advisor will visit you to talk about your business goals, challenges and needs, and help you find the right support and plan your next steps.

The service is free of charge as part of the Regional Business Partner Programme and you don’t need to be a Chamber member to benefit.

As part of this process we will also let you know whether your business is eligible for co-funding to help you access business training and coaching.

If your business is an R&D-focused businesses, we can help you access grants, innovation skills-building programmes and research and technical services.
