What is Growth 100?

The Growth 100 programme is open to Nottingham-based businesses and is delivered by Nottingham University Business School in conjunction with Nottingham City Council. The programme is partly financed by the European Regional Development Fund.

Growth 100 is free to attend and has been designed to fit around the needs of running a business with twelve one-day practical sessions delivered over a nine month period. The workshops are geared towards how the business leader creates and manages growth covering topics such as leadership, innovation, finance, HR, sales and marketing using a combination of business theory supported by real life examples from business mentors.

Applications for the next intake for Growth 100 are now closed.
