MAS Accelerator Launches

The Manufacturing Advice Service and the Growth Accelerator have merged to form the Business Growth Service.

Last month the Manufacturing Advice Service (MAS) and the Growth Accelerator merged to form the new Business Growth Service, along with the Intellectual Property Office's IP Audits scheme and the Design Council's Design Mentoring scheme.

"Small businesses told us the support available was too disjointed so we have joined it together through our new Business Growth Service, which will provide a tailored package of support to thousands of firms each year."

Business and Enterprise Minister Matt Hancock

The Business Growth Service is aimed at businesses based in England with growth potential, who are currently operating with fewer than 250 employees and a turnover of less than £40 million. It will offer the same services to businesses that are on course to deliver at least £3.4bn of economic growth (GVA) and create 78,000 new jobs through the Growth Accelerator and MAS, in what should be a more convenient package for businesses to access.
