The School of Business and Economics (SBE) has teamed up with the Government’s Growth Voucher programme to help businesses access and pay for the advice they need to grow.

The Small Business Charter, the awards scheme aimed at driving local economic growth through business school support for entrepreneurs and small businesses, announced the launch of its tailored Growth Voucher programme this week. The initiative provides match funding to small businesses to pay for and access high-quality leadership and management advice from a national consortium of top business schools.

Thousands of businesses have already benefited from strategic support via business schools holding the Small Business Charter and through Government Growth Vouchers. This new roll out of Growth Vouchers, by six leading business schools that hold the Small Business Charter, will allow more entrepreneurs to access world class support to expand their businesses.
