Welcome to Grow Business Club at The Alnwick Garden

The Grow Business Club has been formed to break the stereotypical ‘business networking’ mould. We’re brand new and from March 2024 we’ll meet face to face once a month but drive the power of collaboration on a daily basis. Together we share learning, harness insight, join forces and have a whole lot of fun along the way. There are no set expectations, no required commitments and we love for businesses of all shapes and sizes to join us.

What makes our club different?

Our club is the true definition of collaboration at its best. We’re not here for simply delivering great tea and coffee (although they’re of course on the agenda). We created Grow to help achieve palatable objectives, overcome collective challenges and help each other thrive in Northumberland and the wider North East.

With a unique circuit style set up, our club offers an opportunity to meet and chat to everyone in the room to discuss important themes such as sustainability, innovation, community, education, employment and everything in between.
