Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) Growth Hub

What is the CWLEP Growth Hub?

The Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) Growth Hub acts as a single point of contact for businesses within the borough wishing to grow by providing free information, advice and support and offers specialist advice and support from a team of experienced and accredited account managers, who also act as a signpost to a range of services from organisations across the region.
