Need more help in growing your business?

The Government has launched a campaign called Business in You” which will offer you with  range of support, provided by both the private sector and government.  

There is a wealth of information and help available to you. Various partners have come together through the campaign to make sure that small firms know what is available, with some of the campaign partners providing free services including workshops, web-based seminars and video tutorials on issues like finance, as well as providing mentoring and face to face consultancy sessions.

Each month, the campaign will focus on a different theme relating to start ups and growth and will highlight the wide range of support available; from online advice on through to specialist schemes such as the Enterprise Finance Guarantee (, a loan guarantee scheme that encourages banks to lend to viable SMEs which lack the collateral or credit history to secure a normal bank loan.
