Growth Hubs

Since 2015 Blue Orchid has managed and operated the Cheshire & Warrington Growth Hub on behalf of the Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). We have provided valuable advice and referral services, in-depth business support and are also contributing to the current thinking on future of Growth Hubs within the UK LEP Network and the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

The Cheshire & Warrington Growth Hub has:

  • Engaged with over 4,000 businesses
  • Provided face-to-face support to over 500 SMEs
  • Delivered specialist support services and grants to 250 SMEs

This has resulted in more than £800,000 of SME growth project work and more than 100 new jobs being created.
