Gathering at GrowbizEnterprising Eastern Perthshire or Growbiz is a community based project. It helps people to start their own business or grow an existing  enterprise and also helps community groups to improve their marketing or financial planning. It takes the approach that the solutions to problems can be found within the community. A skilled Facilitator is supported by a panel of local volunteers (business people, community representatives and networkers, among others).

Funding and support have come from Scottish Enterprise, the EU LEADER programme, Perth & Kinross Council and local groups and organisations.

The 56 new jobs created in approximately two years have cost an average of £1,875 each (£3,928 including full start-up costs). This is less than any examples identified through published sources, such as £16,000 per job for Regional Selective Assistance, and does not take additional jobs retained into account.
