Business Support

Our Story

‘How To’ business support programme

We work with local authorities to provide free business advice and support to businesses in geographic areas.

The ‘How To’ Business Support Programme provides hands-on knowledge and expertise that gets to the heart of everyday business issues, and provides real, actionable business solutions.

No fluff. No dodging the questions. Just straight to what they need to know, how to do it and what to do next.

Tailored support

We know from experience that there’s no one-size-fits all approach to running a successful small business. The How To Business Support Programme helps entrepreneurs run their businesses smartly and efficiently by completing each of these five modules:

  • Strategy – model the business and action planning
  • Sales & Marketing – find customers and win sales
  • Operations – become agile and resilient
  • People – build a winning, happy team
  • Finance – raise and manage money

An easy to use business toolkit

Each module will question the way businesses work to see if there’s a better way of doing things and if they’re just starting out, the programme will help them set up business systems without wasting lots of time and money.

They’ll use easy to use tools for a modern age, like AI technology to help them promote themselves to the wider world and keep a check on their business while they sleep.

These tools are designed for non-techies and we’ll guide them every step of the way, at their pace and level. And what’s more, they are either free of charge or low-cost. You’ll be amazed at what can be achieved, once you know ‘How To’!
