Business Development Support

We are committed to facilitating the development and growth of businesses, and with this in mind we have developed a range of business support services to meet specific business needs.

Networking Events

In addition to the extensive network of businesses based at both our sites we also provide access to a range of free networking events including Social Media Marketing, SEO, Web Design,  Sales & Marketing and Finance Workshops. We also have access to our very own IP Barrister who visits The Business Village every second Tuesday in the month to discuss any worries you may have about your new ideas and venture.  Sessions last thirty minutes and are free of charge

We have strong links with Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce who host a monthly coffee morning on site at The Business Village.  We also enjoy great relationships with both Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (Lep) and Sheffield City Region via its Growth Hub programme.

These events and many more are all promoted via our notice boards, you can also browse our complete diary of events.
