Cumbria Growth Catalyst is delivered by a range of partners through Cumbria Business Growth Hub

“It’s great to have support for businesses that miss out on other initiatives because they don’t meet the European Regional Development Fund criteria. Although some support has been available through local authorities, Cumbria Growth Catalyst greatly increases the help available.
