Here at Velocity we want to help unleash the potential of your business and to support your growth ambitions.

We offer free guidance to direct you to the best ways of gaining valuable information to boost your business and we’ll help you on every step of your journey.

There is a colossal amount of business information sources, particularly online. Some are free, some are via subscription services and all are of variable quality and relevance. As a result, navigating through this minefield of information can prove a complex and time-consuming exercise for growing businesses and entrepreneurs.

One of Velocity’s key aims is to help direct companies to the most appropriate and up to date sources of information available, quickly and efficiently helping you to maximise your growth potential and letting you concentrate on what you do best – running your business.

Velocity puts you right at the heart of a proactive business community here in the South East Midlands and we are ready to provide you with all the business information you need to succeed.
