What can we do for you?

BCU Advantage is the business support service from Birmingham City University. We help businesses from all sectors start, grow and innovate.

You might be an entrepreneur needing guidance to launch your business idea or a start-up or small business looking to grow or find investment. You could even be a larger, more established business wanting bespoke research to help you innovate or diversify. Whatever your business support needs, BCU Advantage can connect you to the knowledge, skills and funding you need to achieve your business goals.

How it works

We have a range of business support solutions for regional businesses (within the GBSLEP area) as well as opportunities for businesses and organisations nationally and internationally.

Our business support solutions are collaborations with Birmingham City University academics, business specialists and recruitment professionals, as well as partner organisations and funding bodies.

Based on your business needs, start by selecting the business support option that’s right for you:

  • I want to start my business
  • I want to grow my business
  • I want to innovate my business.

You will then find a range of business services that support your need. Select the service that’s right for you and send us an enquiry. We will then contact you to see how we can help.
