" Business Development Specialists "
Helping businesses to succeed – creativity, planning and determined
Our business is helping other businesses with their growth and development
plans. We find that the assistance businesses need varies greatly, often
related to the stage of maturity. We specialise in assistance to SME’s
at the following stages:
Grant search and advice.
This may involve accessing local authority, national or European Union
sourced grant assistance.
Normally via one of a range of agencies with access to equity finance.
May involve a business angel or a government sponsored fund for specific
Assistance with business set up.
Limited company formation, appointment of directors, appointment of accountant,
premises, pay roll arrangements.
Business plan development.
A business plan is a fundamental requirement for all new businesses.
For new starters, we place as much importance on the process of
developing the business plan as we do on the contents of the document
Many new starters expect the process to be daunting, and undergo
the process under duress. We have developed a very simple business
plan structure designed to encourage the business owners to
consider all aspects of the business before starting.
We use this structure to develop a business plan which will become a
live, working document, used to help the processes of driving and also
controlling the business.
A business plan is a pre-requisite for all types of funding. We will
work with you to develop a comprehensive business plan with the aim of
achieving a specific objective, such as securing start up funds.
It is not unusual to find that a new start business has an overall
business plan but the business is failing to achieve the forecast
level of sales activity. We will analyse your market situation and
work with your people to define what is realistically achievable
in the market, together with the required actions to deliver the
agreed target results.
The assistance required here usually relates to the following areas:-
- Funding to develop new products or processes.
- Adding new dimensions to sales activity and business development.
- Training of management in specific managerial skills.
