Cheshire and Warrington Business Growth Programme

Are you ready to grow your business?

The Cheshire and Warrington Business Growth programme provides fully funded support for local:

  • Pre-start: Entrepreneurs looking to start a business
  • New start-up: Trading less than 42 months
  • SME: Small and medium-sized enterprises trading over 42 months

We will work with you to access the expertise and knowledge that currently exists across the region from the relevant delivery partner to help develop your skills and grow your business.

Upon signing up to the programme, we will sit with you to complete a business diagnostic which will identify your business needs to enable growth.

You will then be able to access 12 hours of fully funded support (in the form of one-to-one meetings, workshops, seminars, masterclasses and more) across a wide range of business growth areas. These include accounts and finance, marketing, HR, product development and many more.

Top tip: Make time to focus on the image of your company. This is more than just your name. It’s your brand identity, distilled into its purest form. It brings your vision and values to life and connects you to your customers, so you need to give it some thought.


We will be providing more fully funded @CW_BGP workshops in the very near future. In the meantime, we want to know more about what you want to learn, so we can tailor these workshops to your needs. Please complete the survey at

The Business Growth Programme @CW_BGP offers 12 hours of fully funded support to those looking to start a business and new businesses. The programme offers training in accounts and finance, marketing, HR and product development.

We have many case studies that highlight how much help we have provided to local businesses. This includes @TheCheshGarden who helped the founder, Jane Bingham, develop her business skills.

Top tip: Will you form a limited company, a limited liability partnership (LLP), a traditional partnership or will you be a sole trader? Each option has pros and cons and you need to determine what will work best for you.
