Supporting Business in Cherwell

Here in North Oxfordshire we have various public sector bodies offering support to businesses and working closely together to provide the best service they can. This makes the most of our varied strengths and enhances what is available to you to help you succeed.

For mainstream business, you’ll find a lot of support through the many flourishing business networking groups. If you are starting a business in a high-growth or high-technology sector, we have a range of specialist help for you. The Oxfordshire Enterprise Hub provides specialist support covering areas such as R&D funding, Intellectual Property (IP) protection and ready-for-funding preparations.

As well as being a great place to grow existing companies, Cherwell is a great place to start one.

Cherwell's flourishing business networks provide informal support and opportunities to meet local suppliers and clients.
