Free, expert support to boost your business

Free support to help launch your new business or take your current business to new heights.

Business Boost is a new business support service offering a great range of free advice and guidance for new or existing businesses up to three years old.

The aim of the project is to help pre-starts, startups and existing businesses in all aspects of setting up and running a successful business. Bespoke, one-to-one support is given through face-to-face meetings with an experienced business adviser who will help take your business to the next level.

A range of funded business skills workshops are available covering a wide selection of subjects to help boost your business knowledge. From social media and basic book keeping to creating your first business website, there will be plenty of ways to improve your business skills. We also hold regular, monthly Enterprise Clubs in Exeter, Tiverton, Newton Abbot and Honiton to network with like-minded individuals and talk through ideas and issues with a business advisor. 

Support is available throughout Exeter, Mid Devon, East Devon and Teignbridge. Whether you need help starting out or would like some expert guidance on how to grow your existing business then we can help.
