Growth Vouchers programme

Support for small businesses to grow.

The Growth Vouchers research programme will test what works best when giving advice to business - helping small businesses to find strategic advice from private sector suppliers who can help their business to grow.

This joint programme between the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Behavioural Insights Team in Cabinet Office was launched on 27 January 2014 and rolled out over 15 months. The scheme is now closed.

Growth Vouchers offer expert advice in areas such as:

  • raising finance and managing cash flow
  • recruiting and developing staff
  • improving leadership and management skills
  • marketing
  • attracting and keeping customers
  • making the most of digital technology
