A Richmondshire business has hailed “game-changing support” which is says has helped it flourish.
Trimble Group, based at Aske near Richmond, is a veterinary-led communications company that helps animal health professionals create engaging educational content.
Two years ago, Trimble Group began working with York & North Yorkshire Growth Hub, which is ne of 38 hubs set up by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to offer free support to businesses.
Toby Trimble, CEO and founder of Trimble Group, said: “The York & North Yorkshire Growth Hub has been an absolute game-changer for our business, Trimble Group. They provided us with invaluable support, guidance, and funding opportunities.
“From helping us develop our studio to connecting us with a trusted advisor, they’ve been there every step of the way.
“Their non-judgmental approach and expert advice have been instrumental in overcoming challenges and building a sustainable growth plan. We highly recommend their services to any business seeking to thrive.”
Collaborating with the Growth Hub’s business relationship manager Nick White, support has taken various forms, beginning with help to secure a grant that played a pivotal role in establishing Trimble Group’s studio.
This financial injection facilitated essential acquisitions such as lighting equipment, enabling the execution of multiple shoots and significantly enhancing their operational efficiency.
Beyond financial assistance, Nick provided guidance that has helped Trimble Group’s growth strategies.
Toby added: “I think the most valuable thing the Growth Hub has done for us is connecting me with a really valuable advisor.
“Having someone to be able to talk to frankly and be able to discuss the challenges in your business without judgement and help you get to a solution has been absolutely instrumental to us in building towards what we hope is going to be a really bright future.”
