Here at Oxford Innovation Advice we provide ambitious businesses with valuable and trusted advice that enables them to thrive.

We create and deliver business support programmes that nurture a culture of innovation to generate sustainable growth.

We specialise in delivering business support programmes for cities, regions and places that are aimed at helping their small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) to grow, to innovate and to raise finance for their expansion.

We have over 30 years experience in the delivery of innovative business support projects. Over the last 10 years we have designed and delivered both national and regional business support programmes that have provided valued support to more than 31,694 SMEs. Our clients are the Department of BEIS, Innovate UK, 23 Local Enterprise Partnerships, three city regions, several universities and more. We also deliver a number of targeted projects for SME businesses across the country that enhance their productivity and competitiveness, including Peer Networks and Supply Chain Improvement programmes.

We like to think we also know something about what works to help ambitious businesses to grow and so Oxford Innovation Advice publishes a regular view of SME needs and enterprise policy effectiveness, called Insights. It draws on our 30 years’ experience of delivering positive economic growth and is written for policy makers, funders and business support commissioners.
