Take your small business to the next level by joining the Aston Programme for Small Business Growth.  Develop your leadership skills and build a targeted growth strategy for your own business in the company of other ambitious business leaders.

  • Workshops taught by experts in SME leadership and management.
  • One-to-one support to help you tackle your business challenges.
  • Networking with other early stage business owners from the Midlands.
  • SME case studies from business leaders talking about their growth journey.
  • Guidance through the various external finance options available to you.
  • The opportunity to pitch your growth strategy to external finance experts.
  • Time to explore the strategic growth opportunities for your business.


The Aston Programme for Small Business Growth is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Starting late January 2017 the programme will work with around 28 SME and Social Enterprise leaders.
