The GrowBiz XChange

One of the things that makes GrowBiz special is the way that it is based in the community. It recognises that sustainable growth comes from within the community and that among local people there is a wealth of skills and experience which can be shared to help support growth and development.

The GrowBiz XChange is made up of volunteers who want to share their skills, give something back and help others achieve their goals. It helps our business co-ordinators to help GrowBiz clients. Sometimes this is by suggesting possible solutions to practical issues faced by clients such as finding suitable premises for their business or knowledge of specialist types of funding.

XChange members come from a wide range of backgrounds from farmers to entrepreneurs, and therapists to bank managers. They are all volunteers and are a lively, friendly bunch all committed to East and Highland Perthshire and supporting local business ventures of all shapes and sizes. We’re always on the look-out for new XChange members. If you would like to join the XChange please contact us – we will meet you informally and find out more about your background, skills and experience. We’ll also ‘buddy’ you with an existing XChange member so that you know what’s expected and to give you support in the early months.
