Businesses looking for advice on funding or expansion now have a one-stop shop in Kent as part of a Government initiative.
The Kent & Medway Growth Hub is a new service launched this week which brings together a range of free information, products and services aimed to help firms grow.
The centre will be run by Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce after it won a tender from Kent County Council.
It is one of 30 hubs across the UK designed to offer a central point for all information on business support, funding and legislation.
Staff at its base in Ashford Business Point will be able to provide information and act as a first port of call for any business getting off the ground or looking to expand.
Kent Invicta Chamber’s head of business development Tudor Price, who is leading the project, said: “There has been a range of different funding pots launched in the last six or seven years, all knocking on the doors of businesses.
“Bosses say ‘why isn’t there one place to find out about all this?’ This will provide that.”
