When it comes to economic regeneration Bolton is leading the way and is looking forward to continued growth.

We can support you with your growth plans with our Growth Advisor, recruitment support, new premises searches, accessing finance and a whole host of other services.

There’s lots of opportunities to network with other like-minded businesses on a monthly basis in Bolton and the Greater Manchester area. These can include professional networking groups, growth events, workshops and seminars. We also produce a business newsletter giving businesses a chance to find out what’s happening locally.
