Prosper Business Growth

Free support to help your business grow

Managing a business comes with many challenges and all too often you might want to change something or grow in a certain direction, but don't know where to start.

Are you looking at taking your business into new markets, or planning on launching a new product or service? Do you need help with planning, managing finances or applying for grant funding? Or would you like to feel more confident in your pricing strategy, marketing or digital skills? This support is designed for businesses looking to grow, change and adopt new practices.

One of our expert advisors will help you look holistically at your business and identify the primary issues you face and the opportunities for real growth and change. Together, you'll then create a clear, manageable plan of action that you can work through.

    "I wanted to write and thank you for the last two sessions. These one-to-one sessions are gold for a small business. I have found our time really helpful and you have provided me with the information and motivation to step out and do some more proactive marketing on my social media channels. I am very much looking forward to our next session."
