The Access to Finance service has joined the Manchester-based Business Growth Hub.
The service, which receives backing from the European Regional Development Fund, provides businesses with information on the different funding options available. It is committed to raising Â£47m in funding for businesses by 2015.
Access to Finance North West manager Gaynor Dykes said: "Becoming part of the Business Growth Hub puts us right at the heart of the region's new growth strategy and we've been able to hit the ground running, helping over 100 companies already."
Business Growth Hub director Richard Jeffery said: "Accessing the right financing can make a huge difference to a company's ability to grow and Access to Finance has always been key to business growth in the region. By working together we can now also help companies to access a range of both financial and complementary services to help accelerate their business."
The Business Growth Hub is a Manchester-based community for businesses which aims to promote business development.
