Support

Starting a Business

When starting your own business, preparation is key.

To support you on this journey, Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce works closely with the Marches Growth Hub in Herefordshire and Worcestershire Growth Hub.

Both businesses can provide the guidance and signposting you need to ensure you start your new venture well informed and equipped to deal with the journey ahead.

Starter Membership

From our many years of experience, we have developed support for almost every type and size of business there is, regardless of your sector.

Our Membership aims to grow as you do, from the moment you launch to when you first hire staff and beyond. We have a support package for whatever stage your business is at.

Chamber membership is so much more than access to services. It’s access to new connections which could become customers, suppliers, partners or perhaps even friends.

A limited number of funded Memberships are available for eligible* Worcestershire-based start-ups. For all other oganisations, Membership costs only £12.50 per month + VAT.

Would you like to see what else is available? Have a look at the other packages we offer.

What our Members Say:

Simple Design Works has been a member of the H&W Chamber of Commerce for several years and as we’ve grown, they’ve been there every step of the way to support us. I really enjoy meeting fellow members at their networking events as well as finding out how other regional businesses are progressing through their regular updates. Providing HR and legal advice as part of their benefits package is invaluable and has meant that we’ve certainly got the most out of membership! They’ve created a professional business community which is supportive, informative and practical – one that we’re proud of belonging to.
