Suppliers urged to register their details on Business Compass website

The Tees Valley Business Compass team is encouraging potential suppliers to log their details on the brand-new website, to help local businesses grow and create jobs.

Team of people.
Meet Team TVBC (Tees Valley Business Compass)

Firms who offer services to Tees Valley based businesses can now be added to the ‘potential suppliers’ area of the website.

Businesses who are working with the team of Business Compass growth consultants, will have easy access to this information.

The team will also be working to collate any new supplier opportunities which businesses in the Tees Valley could benefit from, giving them easy access to a selection of new contracts and tender opportunities. Tees Valley Business Compass, the local growth hub, is supporting thousands of businesses across Tees Valley using an investment of more than £9.5 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), secured by Tees Valley Combined Authority. It helps local businesses by connecting them with a growth consultant, who’ll offer their expertise to determine how best to help them grow and create jobs. And a wide range of projects, from marketing strategies to research and development projects, can even attract funding.

Shak Asghar, Growth Services Manager for the Tees Valley Business Compass, said: “The team have put a lot of time and effort into creating value for businesses through our new website.
“Not only does it explain the wide range of ways we can help, from broadband support to our growth fund, but it lists helpful local events, a selection of suppliers and even highlights new contract opportunities.
“We think this helps to add even more value to service available through the Tees Valley Business Compass, as we work to help grow businesses and create jobs.”
