Business Growth Services

Achieving your growth potential

As a potential high growth business, there are many different ways that you can sustain your growth. Accessing alternative funding, commercialising your innovation or opening up new markets are some of the choices you may face.  Expert advice is available to help you make the right choices.

Grant Thornton is at the heart of the government’s growth agenda. We have been selected by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills to deliver two premium business growth services to high growth potential businesses registered in England:

  • GrowthAccelerator
  • Manufacturing Advisory Service

These services provide specialist advice from business experts and are part funded by the government.


 Growth Accelerator

GrowthAccelerator is the new premier service that helps ambitious businesses achieve rapid and sustainable growth. 

If you’re an ambitious business, you’re in a race for growth. You’re already good but you want to be bigger and even better.

Our aim is to help you double your business within three years. We’ll help you seize new business opportunities, open doors to the right funding, and match you with expert business coaches close to you and within your sector.  We'll also suggest ways to boost your innovation, develop your products and grow your markets.

Are you eligible?

You need to be a business registered in England with fewer than 250 employees and a turnover of less than approximately £40m. Just as importantly, you should have the potential for rapid, sustained growth and want to double or better within three years.
