Boost is Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub. Our purpose is to help Lancashire’s businesses grow. Boost is a £6.0m Growth Hub backed by the ERDF, led by the Lancashire LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) and Lancashire County Council.
Through Boost, Lancashire businesses from start-ups to large companies can get access to a number of funded programmes in areas such as mentoring, scaling up, innovation, international trade, leadership development, and accessing finance.
We can also help businesses navigate the plethora of national business support programmes to find the support they need.
The Growth Hub also has a dedicated private sector network called Boost and Co, which includes some of the region’s best known private sector growth business support providers such as accountants, law firms and banks.
Founded in 2013, Boost has already helped over 5,000 business grow, creating over 2,200 jobs.
In December 2018, Boost secured £6m of new funding to run for a further three years from January 2019. The service is aiming to support a further 1,450 businesses in the county, creating 1,350 jobs and helping to establish 200 business startups across Lancashire.
We believe Lancashire is a brilliant place to do business. And through Boost, business leaders can get access to whatever support they need to turn their growth dreams into reality.
