Cumbriashare - Changing the way our county does business..!
Cumbriashare is part of the GB Shared group of companies. GB Shared is a network of county-wide sharing platforms which aim to:
* Bring about countywide collaboration, keeping more money and opportunities local
* Stimulate economies at local level through the creation of empathy economies
* Share and centralise; events, awards, funding, tenders, jobs, businesses, property and much more from across the county
* Record the impact of sharing [local supply chains, carbon footprint, unemployment, social values]
Cumbriashare is an online resource for Cumbrian businesses. Our aim is to offer a single online portal for business owners and managers to find support for their organisation. Whether you are thinking of starting or growing your business, extending or training your workforce, winning awards, finding events or increasing sales, being part of the ‘Cumbriashare’ online community will make the journey easier for you!

With thousands of businesses in Cumbria, it makes sense for us to work together to bring prosperity to the county and support to one another. We save you time by bringing you the latest business funding opportunities, details of networking groups and local events all in one place. Our business directory is free to access* and brings you details of Cumbria based companies by sector so you can search for what you need with ease. Furthermore, companies listed in the directory offer you exclusive discounts to ensure you save money on the products and services you need.
We also share public sector tender opportunities, ensuring as many businesses as possible have access to local contracts. Our members receive tender alerts, which also comes with a bid writing service should you need it.
In 2019, we shared over £900 m of bid opportunities out to our members. If you see a tender you like, contact us and we'll be happy to help or signpost you!
In 2020 we launched, The Gen, our national youth platform enabling thousands of businesses across the UK to share opportunities with 16-24 year olds meaning our membership benefits you, your business, your county and the next generation.
