Small Business Hub
Small businesses are at the heart of our community. We forge meaningful, enduring partnerships with small businesses in the region and support their growth.
What we offer
If you are running a small business then you are likely to be in a fast-moving and changing business environment. As your team and business grow you will find you face new challenges, and that advice from people who have been there before can be invaluable.
You are the expert when it comes to your business, but let us help with developing you as a leader, building your business strategy or identifying the capabilities you require to grow. At Leeds University Business School you can access an exceptional range of business expertise to ensure you get exactly what you need to build your business for success.
We would encourage you to contact our small business team to discuss which programmes and projects would be right for you. Email LUBSSMEHub@leeds.ac.uk to arrange a discussion with our team.
Case study - Help to Grow
Caroline Wherritt, Founder and CEO of Re:Work, completed Help to Grow in March 2022 and would ‘absolutely’ recommend it to other small-business leaders in the region.
In this case study Caroline talks about how the programme worked alongside her day-to-day responsibilites and how she was able to tailor what she learnt to fit her business.
