I design and run programmes that support entrepreneurs to grow
I work with my clients to create and deliver outstanding educational programmes that support entrepreneurs and small businesses.
Here are a few of my favourites:
The Raise Impact Crowdfunding Accelerator (2015/16) and the Impact Investment Readiness (2014) programmes for over 80 businesses with Impact Hub Westminster, Capital Enterprise, the European Regional Development Fund. Over £1.5m raised into new businesses since 2014. Role: Programme Design and Manager
Finding The first 100 entrepreneurs for the £3m Hub Launchpad accelerator. (2013) Role: Start-up Community and Communications Builder
My clients and I often collaborate on producing the strategy, and delivery. Sometimes for a day, sometimes for 6 months.
