We are pleased to launch BOOST, our brand new business support offer, consisting of tailored sessions in the areas most important to established entrepreneurs. The BOOST programme will consist of a series of workshops and training events for businesses that are ready to scale up and grow. It is designed to support companies who want to improve their product development and design processes, develop a more robust product to market and retail strategy, secure further investment, and generally improve on business development, leadership and marketing.
We are working with a range of high profile and experienced business leaders and experts to deliver a set of sessions in each area, known as ‘blocks’. Ideally businesses that attend BOOST will be ready to expand and grow their teams, and/or secure further investment. If you think that is you – we can help!
What areas will Boost cover?
Initially we will be running blocks on a range of topics, including:
- optimising your route to market
- business development
How much does it cost?
BOOST is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and so we can offer these sessions at no cost to registered companies.
What are the requirements?
In order to attend BOOST, you need to be a registered company, or registered as self-employed, and ready to scale your business from a startup to an SME, or you are already an SME and looking to streamline and grow your business in a certain area (e.g. marketing).
There is no cost to attend BOOST sessions, but we ask that you attend a minimum of 12 hours of workshops over the next 12 months, although it is not necessary to attend every session of an individual BOOST block if it is not relevant to you.
In order to be accepted onto BOOST, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org who will issue you with a registration form to assess your eligibility. We will then assess your eligibility and be in touch to confirm your space.
Please see here for the first block offered as part of BOOST, which will focus on ‘route to market’.
