Library Growth Hub Network
In partnership with GFirst LEP, Gloucestershire County Council has embedded ‘Growth Hubs’ into all of its 31 libraries across the county.
Along with other partner organisations around the county, The Growth Hub @ the Library is a focal point for business owners who are seeking the relevant information, support, and knowledge needed to grow.
The Growth Hub Network can help you develop and refine your strategy, become more competitive, grow your people and skills, access finance, innovate, improve efficiency and identify new markets. The aim of the Network is to make business support more simplified and accessible, to every corner of Gloucestershire.
What can I get from The Growth Hub @ the Library?
The Growth Hub @ the Library provides an access point to free business support and resources.
Selected libraries have co-working spaces and business areas, whereas some simply have literature and guidance.
