Free Business Support for Calderdale SME’s

Business Growth Calderdale provides free business support to eligible Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SME’s) based in Calderdale. SME’s are defined as businesses with up to 250 employees and an annual turnover of up to 50 Million Euros. 


The aim of the project is to help your business overcome barriers affecting your company’s growth potential. This is achieved by linking your business with appropriate business expertise to address your specific problem. Whilst their may be multiple barriers to the growth of your business you are asked to identify what you consider to be the main barrier to growth. This could potentially tackle almost any kind of business issue but more common issues include help with marketing, leadership, supply chain issues, research and development. 


The delivery of the business support is coordinated via Bradford University Business School and Leeds Metropolitan University. Any interventions offered to businesses under the project are completely free of charge to the business as the cost is met through the European Regional Development Fund and Calderdale Council. 


The scheme has already helped hundreds of Calderdale businesses like yours tackle issues affecting their growth potential. The project also aims to improve local networking and linking up likeminded businesses and individuals where it maybe mutually beneficial.
