CW LEP Growth Hub, in partnership with Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, has launched the brand-new website which is exclusive to businesses and organisations in Coventry and Warwickshire.

FinditinCW replaces CWConnect, as the go-to resource for local businesses to access supply chain opportunities and a range of other B2B resources.

The new and improved business to business portal is ready for you to register your details, and features an array of intuitive changes that will bring opportunities to you in an instant.

It combines the local business knowledge of the Growth Hub and Chamber with the well-established brand ‘Finditin’ to link you to a whole range of opportunities across the region. The innovative approach gives you free access to supply chain opportunities and a wealth of membership benefits for businesses and organisations, from the smallest to the largest.

Registration is free, quick and easy! Initial registration links directly to Companies House to confirm and clarify your organisation's details to make registering simple, and ensures that your details are precise and current.

Once you've registered, you can complete your profile to ensure you see relevant opportunities and support.

You can do this through your Dashboard in the Personal and Business Profile sections.

Once you’ve registered with FinditinCW, follow the instructions on how to build your free mini-site, to give users the best shop window into your business.

Ensure that you complete your 'Sectors of Interest' so that we can send you relevant email alerts for opportunities in your chosen sectors, and tick your 'Communication Preferences'. We can't send you information about news, events or opportunities without your permission.

You can add in brochures, marketing materials, links to your social media accounts and logo's - everything to promote what your organisation does. Make the most of this free marketing tool by linking to your website, uploading a photo of yourself and invite other members of staff to join the company profile.

There is an exciting event programme planned for all sectors, with opportunities to meet buyers and exhibitions to showcase your business. We can publish your good news stories of work won, CSR achievements and what you are doing in the area. We will work with you to promote your services on social media and in newsletters, and help you market your business to its full potential.

Membership will always be free, however there are plenty more services for you to invest in that will benefit your business and help shape a thriving future for Coventry and Warwickshire.

Take a look at the membership page at registration and contact us if you have any questions by emailing info@finditin.co.uk 

There are a number of ways to look for opportunities for your business, but please ensure you have completed your 'Sectors of Interest' and 'Communication Preferences' within your Dashboard. We cannot contact you unless you have.

  • You can 'Post an Opportunity' for your own business. This is a fantastic tool to help you find cost-effective goods and services right on your doorstep. FinditinCW aims to promote the use of local organisations, so sourcing a local supplier in Coventry and Warwickshire is a great start. You then get in touch with us and we will share your use of the website, your business news and the supplier you used.
  • 'Find an Opportunity' links to the sectors that you selected at registration in 'Sectors of Interest'.  Any organisation posting an opportunity, is required to select a sector(s) to post it into. This then generates an email alert which is emailed to the organisations in the specific sector(s). You can also keep your eye on this section, where you will see the latest opportunities, which are updated on a daily basis. Opportunities are posted by the private and public sector. Any business or organisation can post an opportunity.
  • Contracts Finder and CompeteFor – We have an API link with both sites which pulls across all the regional opportunities relevant to SMEs.
  • Project and Supplier Pages – We work with principal contractors and other large organisations to promote work and projects in the area. These bespoke pages will give information about a specific project, how to become a supplier and detail the opportunities available.
  • Our internal Quick Quote module helps buyers select specific companies to quote for goods and services. It is extremely important to make the most of your business profile so that it stands out, when buyers are making selections for suppliers.

The primary aim of FinditinCW is for you to win more business.

Whether you’re a startup in need of a growth strategy, an established company looking to increase profitability, or somewhere in between, there is plenty of business support available. CWLEP Growth Hub and Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce are our partners and are there to help businesses, places and people achieve their full potential.

Together we will work with you to reduce the barriers faced by small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) competing for larger contracts within the public and private sectors.

SMEs sometimes don't have the full set of resources or skills they need to meet medium or high-value contract requirements - but collectively they do.

We want to hear from and work with forward-thinking SMEs who are keen to:

  1. Win and deliver on future contracts;
  2. Provide professional business services to others and support their contract bids.

Please contact us or visit out Business Support page. Whether you want to raise capital, increase your workforce, ramp up production or identify export or supply chain opportunities, Coventry and Warwickshire Growth Hub and the Chamber of Commerce provide tailored, commercially focused and joined-up advice that’s free, impartial and delivered by experienced advisers.
