Help to Grow, a business support programme aimed at helping small and medium sized businesses identify opportunities is going from strength to strength at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).

The 12-week course – which sees business leaders receive advice and mentoring from industry experts, academics, and entrepreneurs – is supported by the Government, which offers a 90% subsidy for eligible businesses. ARU is helping businesses by covering the remaining cost through a fully funded bursary, in recognition of the challenges SMEs are currently facing.

Having already run two successful courses at ARU Peterborough, ARU is now launching its first course in Cambridge, which begins on 15 September and will feature a combination of in person and online sessions.

The Help to Grow: Management course is designed to help business owners make informed decisions, inspire their teams, and navigate future challenges with confidence. Those who have completed the course also join ARU’s expanding Help to Grow Alumni Network.

Business Engagement and Innovation Lead Fiona McGonigle, who is also the Help to Grow Alumni Network Lead at ARU, said:

“Help to Grow allows business owners to fill in the gaps of knowledge and essential skills that might be holding their business back, providing them with a solid foundation for growth and innovation.

“Following two successful cohorts in January and April this year, we’re delighted to have launched ARU’s Help to Grow Alumni Network, which gives business leaders the opportunity to connect and share their experiences and knowledge.”
