D2N2 Innovation

The D2N2 Growth Hub is offering 40 small and medium sized businesses FREE one-to-one innovation support.

The support will be delivered by a highly experienced professional from Pera Consulting and will help you to do the following to protect and grow your business: –

  • Identify opportunities for innovation
  • Use innovation tools and processes
  • Develop an innovation culture

For maximum impact from this support, key staff will need to be available to participate in up to one full day of consultancy support held at your premises. You must also be able to invest some time to embed the results of this support within the business.

If you are interested in applying for this support, please contact: Rebecca Littlewood on 07920 563578 or email

If you are attending the Derby Business Expo on Friday (30th October), you may also wish to take advantage of a taster session for this support programme at 3.00pm in Workshop 1.

Through the Business Growth Service, businesses can also access support with design mentoring. This includes Design Council’s offer, ‘design intensive’ (for businesses with a turnover of £5m+), and the more general design support called design coaching.

Information on support for innovation and developing new products can be found on the D2N2 Growth Hub website here.

For businesses looking to expand in the Ashfield and Mansfield area, there is a dedicated page detailing available grant funding in the area, for more information please visit the Invest Ashfield & Mansfield grants page.
