"Being able to identify, explore and solve everyday problems with other SMEs has been stimulating and invigorating"

Richard Hine, Founder, British Polo Gin

“I have found the Start and Grow Enterprise experience immensely helpful. Running a SME can at times be a lonely place; as such being able to identify, explore and solve everyday problems with other SMEs has also been really stimulating and invigorating. As such, I found myself really looking forward to every week’s seminar!

It has also been really helpful to be able to access totally objective advice from market leaders and industry experts; who have all addressed every question/query, however small or seemingly mundane, with total vigour.

The Start and Grow Enterprise programme, and more widely, The Growth Hub really does have a plethora of information and support to offer. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at The team for all of their support to date and to urge anyone looking for business support to reach out to and to enrol in the Start and Grow Enterprise  programme – you will certainly leave the programme feeling enriched and rejuvenated!”

"I signed up with Start and Grow Enterprise because I needed to know more about what I didn’t know"

Peter Anderson, Rhythm Sales

“Three years ago I attempted my wellbeing consultancy using movement as the bases for stress management. But with no business support or experience in start-ups, I failed greatly.

 Two and half years later, still emotional busied by my defeat I joined the Growth Hub to start my new Sales and Welling company – Rhythm Sales. I signed up with Start and Grow Enterprise because I needed to know more about what I didn’t know. I was inspired by the talks from entrepreneurs that had been in my place but are now up and running with their successful businesses. I pledged to be one of those speakers in the following year and decided to take all there was on offer.

Working with the Start and Grow Enterprise team has increased my confidence, stabilised my beliefs and energised my drive. I now have a clear business direction supported by a hunger for success”

"A solid foundation for the business!"

Jenni Retourné, Founder, Willowberry

“I came across The Growth Hub and Start and Grow Enterprise by chance, not long after I had launched my natural skincare brand Willowberry, which is loaded with nutrients to care for the skin’s well being.

Start and Grow Enterprise has proven completely invaluable for my business, by helping me to create a solid foundation for the business, guide me through financial planning and funding and focus my sales and marketing efforts”

"I needed to position myself as an expert in my industry"

Isobel Turner-Cross, Founder, Rosamae Botanicals

“I applied for the voucher after my Start and Grow Enterprise course, providing my reasons for needing the funding and I was thrilled to be accepted. I’d already decided to buy a Diploma in natural skincare formulation from ‘Formula Botanica’ It’s an online study course that I can fit in around my young family and is very interactive.

I realised early on that I need to position myself as an expert in the industry. The fee was unobtainable to me, but now I’ve signed up for the new term and am the most eager student they have ever seen. With a qualification I can earn credibility”
