"Without taking those first steps and joining the programme, I wouldn't have expanded." 

By taking part in the Accelerator Programme in 2019, Sophie learned from other more established business owners. They helped her to nail down her thoughts, put a business plan in place, and understand the process of forecasting.

“If you’re thinking of doing something like this, go for it. You’re going to get support at a very early stage that will set your business up for the future. If you have the ability and want to do it, don’t hesitate.”

Will decided to invest some time in our pilot accelerator programme to enable him and his business partner to focus on, and develop, a strategy and move forward.
