Business Support

The TDA is focused on generating new jobs by supporting local businesses whether they are looking to start up, develop or grow. The business journey can be challenging and most successful businesses receive support at sometime during that journey. This is where the TDA can help.  Whether you’re looking to start a business, grow a business or need guidance with a particular business issue (ie. sales and marketing, cash flow etc...) we can support you.In this section of the website, you’ll find details of the support available including: 

1-2-1 advice and support from SFEDI accredited advisors

Sometimes you need someone you can trust to talk to. In business, having a personal advisor can make a huge difference, especially if you’re just starting out. Our Business Advisors are here to offer you that personal support through face to face meetings.

Sourcing finance

At TDA, we can advise you on how to find additional funding for your business. We also have strong links to other business support organisations and networks. So we are well aware of new funding initiatives in the region.

Business premises

In Torbay, there is an active network of support for new and growing businesses. Many private commercial landlords offer generous packages to expanding businesses. For office-based enterprises, that can include excellent deals on high-speed Internet connectivity and other office facilities. At TDA, we have an extensive database of commercial property available for new and growing businesses in the region.

Business data

By monitoring the performance of local businesses and economy and businesses the TDA can make informed decisions based on business feedback about the kind of support on offer in the Bay, enabling us to create a supportive environment to continue helping businesses to grow and prosper. The information from the Barometer is used to influence and shape the activities of TDA and make sure that they are providing the correct support to benefit Torbay’s business community.

We also support new investors to take up the opportunities on offer in the Bay and help them relocate quickly and profitably.
