Business Essex logoA new organisation will signpost businesses across Essex to advice and support, especially small or new businesses. The network, called BEST Growth Hub, took a big step forwards today. Over 30 different organisations in Essex that provide business advice and support came together at Chelmsford City racecourse to become part of the BEST network.

BEST stands for Business Essex, Southend & Thurrock and is building on the success of the Southend Growth Hub.

Attending the meeting was Cllr. Stephen Robinson, Leader of the Opposition Lib Dems on Chelmsford City Council. He commented, "I meet many local businesses, especially the smaller ones, who struggle with issues like training, new premises and other business support. It looks like BEST Growth Hub could be a great help to them."
