Aberdeen City and Shire has been one of the strongest regions for growth in the UK over the last five years. If you have the ambition to grow your business's sales, to introduce new products, to increase your workforce or to enter new UK or international markets we can help through our local team of Business Growth Advisers. Local Business Advisers will support you in three ways:
- Their own knowledge and experience. They understand what it's like to run a business, have held senior positions within industry and have assisted hundreds of their clients to achieve the objective of well managed growth.
- Their contacts. Business Gateway acts as a gateway to a vast number of individuals and organisations across public and private sectors who can assist your growth plans. This may be to look at investment options to fund future development, to develop into new international markets or to improve efficiencies within current operations.
- Access to public sector "product" support. Business Gateway growth clients can utilise a number of financial products including grants designed to assist the implementation of growth plans
