Welcome to the Growth Accelerator Programme

Funded by Dumfries and Galloway Council and the European Regional Development Fund, the Growth Accelerator Programme (GAP) is a business growth programme launched in September 2016.

Complementing Business Gateway Dumfries and Galloway's Business Growth Service, free sector-specific support is available to growing businesses in Dumfries and Galloway and those with aspirations to grow, by either creating jobs or increased turnover, regardless of size. Dedicated advisers each with a specialism in the region’s key sectors including tourism and food and drink,    can offer business growth advice on a one to one basis, accessing other support as required including business masterclasses, workshops, and expert consultancy services. GAP also offers support for businesses who need to review or develop their digital marketing strategy including social media, and generic support with public sector contract procurement.

If your business has ambitions to grow, and you'd like specialist support,  get in touch with the GAP team now. Call us on 01387 260380 or email gap@dumgal.gov.uk.
