DBOP (Durham Business Opportunities Programme)

The Durham Business Opportunities Programme (DBOP) helps businesses in County Durham grow, by linking them with tangible opportunities, which could be a new contract, a new supplier or perhaps some investment.

DBOP was created to particularly link with businesses which perhaps have not yet engaged with existing business support for whatever reason.  This is why the opportunity-spotting nature of the programme is crucial: the DBOP team at Business Durham will build a relationship with a company and help them identify and go after opportunities for growth, with a wealth of contacts, networks and knowledge available to businesses. 

Our aim is to simplify and help increase take up of regional and national business support if appropriate to the business and the team will also offer intensive follow on support through the procurement of a number of strands of expertise tailored to a business.

The three year programme is for SMEs and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and delivered by Business Durham.

County Durham Engineering and Manufacturing Network (CDEMN) is the organisation tasked with supporting the continued growth of the area’s engineering and manufacturing industries.

County Durham Engineering Manufacturing Network will take the lead on engagement with SME’s in the engineering and manufacturing sector and on identifying potential market opportunities in that sector.
