If you’ve started a new business in the last two years and you’re able to commit to 18 hours of your time over 12 weeks, we have a programme, worth over £900, that will expand your network and help boost the growth of your business.

The EM3 Growth Hub’s Start Up Peer Network programme will help give your business the best start by building a trusted network of fellow entrepreneurs where in small groups, you can learn from each other experiences, solve problems and share ideas.

The online action learning sessions, led by industry expert Paul Cliff, are held fortnightly, when best practice and opportunities are shared to improve both your long-term business performance and your own personal growth.

In addition to the peer network programme, our partners at WE ARE UMi we are offering 12-months access to their UMi Sat Nav business information tool.

On top of this, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) are also waiving their membership joining fee, while Surrey Chambers of Commerce are offering a £50 discount for new members.

Joining the Start Up Peer Networking programme is a great opportunity to:

  • Develop and share best practice
  • Draw on considerable collective experience of your peers
  • Share your challenges in a safe place and build a trusted network of partners
  • Access valuable performance resources

In return we ask that you to commit yourself to attend every session.

Who can join the programme?

The Start-Up Peer Network programme is open to anyone who runs a limited company, in any sector, which is less than two years old, located within the EM3 area of central and north Hampshire and west Surrey.
