Business growth – What do SMEs in the West of England really think?
Exploring the drivers and barriers to business growth in small- and medium sized organisations.
The University of Bristol is looking for small and medium-sized businesses (10-100 employees) in the West of England region who are interested in participating in a study exploring business growth.
Why? This research will provide evidence to inform the services the West of England region provides to help businesses.
Who? We are looking for businesses that have been established for more than 3 years with a minimum of 10 employees in Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. We would like to speak to the person who manages the day-to-day performance of your business.
What’s involved? You will participate in an individual interview and have the option to participate in a workshop at the University, where participant will review the findings together with academics and Local
Enterprise Partnership representatives with a view to informing policy decisions.
Benefits? We will provide access to a summary of the research findings, which alongside participation in the workshop may provide insights for your own strategic decision making. Furthermore, you may wish
to build on contacts from the workshop to take part in future expert discussions about productivity. If you wish, the West of England Growth Hub business support service can follow up on the project to
provide your business with tailored support on topics such as finance and adoption of technology.
If you are interested in joining this project, or want to find out more, please contact Dr Katharina Burger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
