We have found that many SMEs don’t have an effective network of peers that they can talk with about how they manage and run their businesses.
We are building those peer networks, starting with the Cornwall hospitality cluster.
Launched in 2018, our Cornwall hospitality cluster sees 75 hospitality companies in Cornwall coming together to share business ideas and solutions, both in person and via digital platforms. These businesses have already begun to identify challenges in common, and we are helping them to coalesce around solving these.
One of the key productivity gains in sharing best practice and experience among businesses is time saved. Now, instead of trying to solve a problem at the beginning, SME owners in Cornwall can reach out to their community and build out a solution borrowing from the experience of others. Even simple advice on what not to try, can help save a business inordinate amounts of time and money.
