Councillor Stuart Barker, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Economy and Growth, said: “The Fast Track to Growth programme does exactly what Devon County Council is aiming to promote – the growth of local businesses in the county. Devon is an ideal place to establish a business and to expand. We're proud to back the initiative especially as it offers an opportunity for companies to receive support and gain expert knowledge from other local businesses. I’m sure businesses that attend the event will get a lot out of it.”
