Business accelerator programme launched for budding entrepreneurs

This story is over

Greenborough Management Ltd, in partnership with Knowing How, and with support from Streets Chartered Accountants, has designed and developed a new Accelerator Programme for the county.

Named 10by10, the programme aims to provide an opportunity for 10 businesses in the area with growth potential to benefit from intensive development support over 10 workshops.

The programme is built around business development, training and support, with access to mentors providing expert advice across the workshops, in addition to one-to-one support.

The weekly place-based workshops are facilitated by educators and mentors including Stuart Hartley, Simon Jones, Annabelle Beckwith, Dr Lesley Crane and Russell Copley, all of whom are experts in their own fields.

By committing their time, the 10 businesses will work through an intensive programme to understand how they can sustainably grow their businesses, work with experienced mentors who have been through the process themselves, and receive intensive one-to-one support and guidance throughout.

The Accelerator Programme will come to a close with a showcase, where each business is invited to demonstrate their business, and to pitch to a panel of selected prospective investors; the winner of which will receive a cash prize.

All programme graduates will also be invited to join the 10by10 Alumni Network, where they can continue to interact and engage with their peers, people they have met during the programme, and with new cohorts as they join the programme – 10by10 is designed to be a platform of which businesses can continue to receive support and guidance.
