Introduction to the
Business Growth
Service
May 2015
What is the Business Growth Service?
GrowthAccelerator,
Manufacturing Advisory Service
(MAS), Intellectual Property
Audits and Design Mentoring
will integrate to become the
Business Growth Service.
The service will provide tailored business support to small
and medium sized firms with ambition and potential to grow.
Throughout their journey, participants will have a single
point of contact from the Business Growth Service and,
depending on the type of help they need, will be introduced
to experts from other existing Government service including
UKTI, UKEF, Innovate UK and local growth hubs.
