Would your business benefit from a free business advice session?

The Hive, Nottingham Trent University's centre for entrepreneurship and enterprise, are working with the Nottingham Growth Hub to offer free business surgeries. These sessions are aimed at any businesses that would benefit from connecting with the local business network and support organisations.

Provided by Nottingham City Council, the Nottingham Growth Hub service helps businesses to access the support they need. Statistics show that businesses that take business advice and use it outperform those that don't by a factor of two.

Each business surgery session lasts 30 minutes and is totally confidential. The topics of discussion will be specific to your needs but may include:

  • access to finance
  • recruitment and workforce support
  • business development and growth
  • breaking into new markets, and
  • strategic business development.

The business surgeries offer the chance to discuss in confidence any issues in growing your business, identify any support you might require, and then signpost you towards any available assistance. Where those businesses can demonstrate potential for high growth the Growth Hub can continue working with them on an ongoing basis, ensuring they are aware of support programmes as they come online and referring them in.

Anthony Byrne, the Account Manager for the Creative and Digital Industries of the Growth Hub, is running these surgeries at The Hive to ensure you are plugged in to the available support. Anthony’s area of specialisation is in the creative and digital sector, but businesses of all sectors are invited. The purpose of these initial surgeries is to make contact and engage with any and all businesses that may be interested. Individuals can then be signposted to the appropriate sector support.


The following 30 minute slots are on offer:

  • 9.30 am - 10 am
  • 10.15 am - 10.45 am
  • 11 am - 11.30 am
  • 11.45 am - 12.15 pm
