Coaching and Support

START UP coaching is free, confidential and bespoke, based around your individual aspirations. Whether you are at the early stages of developing your idea or want to explore how to take your business further, we can help at every stage.

Our confidential coaching sessions are initially delivered one-to-one by our enterprise advisers and are tailored around the specific needs of you and your business. 

We'll help provide direction in taking your ideas forward by offering a clear insight into the steps that you can take to achieve your goals. Our business advisers will also be there to offer support and guidance on your journey to starting up your business and beyond. 

Specialist advice and valuable contacts

Our advisers have connections to a wide range of business professionals and provide introductions to our network of industry experts, influencers and investors, regionally and nationally. They can provide you with specialist advice and access to great opportunities.

Whatever your needs, your adviser can support you and make introductions when needed.
