Greater Manchester High Growth Network

The Greater Manchester High Growth Network offers a fully funded high-impact support programme for businesses looking to grow.

The Greater Manchester High Growth Network is a programme of business support for small to medium-sized enterprises interested in achieving high growth. 

The Greater Manchester High Growth Programme has now successfully completed its funding cycle, and therefore will not currently be running another cohort. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the programme, we have been privileged to assist in your growth journey.
However, this is not the end! We are confident we will be able to continue the programme when the next round of funding becomes available later this year. If you are interested in working with us to grow your business and would like to secure a place on the future programme, please get in touch by completing the registration form below. We will then contact you to discuss how we may be able to support you and your business.

The High Growth Network provides a programme of five knowledge workshops, peer growth group sessions and action planning for growth. Whether your ultimate goal is increased revenue, greater staff recruitment and retention or a desire for embedding leadership, the Growth Network will help support your ambitions.
