GrowBiz was founded in 2007 to help local people build businesses and enterprises for themselves.

It draws on the principles of Ernesto Sirolli who believes that the growth that comes from within the community is the best and most sustainable type to have, helping to create vibrant thriving communities in areas which may otherwise struggle.


From October 2016 through to October 2019 GrowBiz  engaged with over 1,000 individuals, small businesses and social enterprises in rural Perth and Kinross through a combination of 1-1 support, peer learning, mentoring and networking. Around 300 of these clients were pre-start up or ready to launch a new business.  We held 294 events  (including 49 webinars) with a total of 3,947 attendees. And of course many people who haven't gone on to start a new business have had other positive outcomes including new jobs and training, education and volunteering opportunities.

The people involved with GrowBiz are there because they care passionately about local enterprises, communities and sustainable development.  Find out more about our dedicated Board here and our Team here.
