NAVIGATING the best way to business success was the theme of a launch event at Warsash Maritime Academy.

Solent Growth Hub showcased its new web portal that signposts companies and entrepreneurs in the region towards grant funding, training and other support.

The website,, complements phone and face-to-face hub services launched earlier this year.

Fronting the services are a team of ‘navigators’ tasked with making it as easy as possible for companies to reach the most appropriate sources of help.

Dr Alistair McDermott, director of innovation services at the University of Portsmouth, said: ‘Solent Growth Hub will help to deliver the strategic aims of the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership and unlock the potential of our knowledge base.’
