Velocity is a marketplace for established businesses looking to grow. We provide business owners with business information, business growth advice and guidance and can signpost them to specialist national, regional and local business support.
Velocity Growth Hub runs a project, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, to provide local business with over 12 hours of tailored business support, including one to one advice and workshops or grants to help them succeed.
Our clients were able to access advice and tools via one to one support from our business advisers and our business support workshops.
Local businesses can promote their ideas and get support through the Enterprise Nation platform.Malcolm Johnston, SEMLEP
Enterprise Nation has provided us with a range of business support workshops and created the SEMLEP Marketplace to enable small to medium sized businesses in the local area to promote their business and be found by more clients.
