Who are Building Growth South West – we work with a range of partners and funders to provide the best training and skills development support for SMEs across the South West of England.

BGSW are able to identify the types of ‘digital tools’ that can save you time and money whilst ruling out the ones that are not relevant to you. We will be on hand to talk to you around key areas of taking your business digital. Whether this is to find out how to apply for funding or simply streamlining your processes to allow you more time in your day, you will be in the right place!

What is DESME – Digital Enablement for Small/Medium-sized Enterprises – funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and led by Building Growth South West to deliver bespoke 1-to-1 digital skills training, in partnership with Devon County Council, the Heart of South West: Digital Skills Partnership, and Cosmic.
