Richmondshire District Council

How’s Business, the Growth Hub for York, North Yorkshire and the East Riding, is excited to announce the arrival of three business relationship managers.

Angela Harris, David Ryden and Nicholas White will be working with businesses in Hambleton, Ryedale, Scarborough and Richmond, acting as critical friends and mentors to established businesses that are wanting to grow.

The team’s work will complement the advisor roles already offered in some local authorities. They will be able to look in detail at a business to help address any problems, find solutions to issues such as access to funding, and prepare them for sustainable growth.

The business relationship managers will be primarily offering between one and 12 hours of support to businesses of between 10 and 250 employees.

The Growth Hub is also offering a telephone support service available to all businesses in the region. This service will help match businesses to grants, loans and other sources of funding, subject to eligibility.

The Growth Hub is Government backed, completely independent, and works with support providers, local authorities and partners. These services are completely free for businesses in the region to access. If you would like to find out further details about How's Business, or if you would like to book an appointment with one of their business relationship managers, please email support@howsbusiness.org, visit their website, or call 01609 797471.
