Who we are
The Enterprise M3 Growth Hub has been developed by business, for business. It is a business-led Local Enterprise Partnership hub working with private and public sector partners to realise the full growth potential of the area. To create sustainable impact and increase employment it is critical to support businesses to become more productive, profitable and grow over the longer term.

Delivered by UMi with its expert partners, SETsquared, Business South and the County Councils of Hampshire and Surrey, the Enterprise M3 Growth Hub is driving impact by working in new ways based on what businesses tell us they need, to help them fulfil their potential.
Years of experience of working with businesses, their service partners and key intermediaries, together with up-to-the-minute research, confirmed that what businesses in this area want to help them grow is:
- A clear and easy access point into the support available
- A personal service based on an understanding of real business issues and opportunities
- A relationship over the longer term
- A complete focus on business impact, not on products or programmes
We used this insight to develop and test a new approach to supporting businesses; one which challenges what is possible when the public and private sector collaborate - one which truly breaks the mould.
