Accelerating and scaling creative businesses

Growing a business is great, but it's not easy

When you have made the decision to grow the business, you need to plan out what it will look like and how it will happen. 

Many people just grow without prior thought, and although they may achieve the goal of growth, they often find it is unsustainable, or it puts the business under such cash or debt pressures that it fails in a matter of months after the growth hits.

We know how to manage the process so that the business has the best chance of long-term survival or to get to point of sale.

We can highlight the areas of the business which will need attention and careful management and work with you to keep on top of these areas as the growth kicks in.

Quick infusion of insight

Many businesses have a strong management team who manage the process themselves if given the correct tools.

A helpful service many growth businesses benefit from is our workshops. You might have one to pin down the strategy or to understand how to best manage cash flow or identify process improvements in the business.

We can also help get investment packs ready and make sure the business structure is fit for purpose. We can get tax clearences in place before raising funding and offer support for funding applications.

It’s not all about the accounts, we act as business supporters, doing what we can to help you grow and succeed.

When looking to grow a business, one of the main issues is funding. What type of funding is most appropriate, how do you do it, what information is required, and what is the application process? We can help find answers to all of these questions.
