Supporting your growth
We have developed a series of masterclasses and workshops for digital technology start ups, founders and entrepreneurs to help them innovate, scale and grow. This is part of our commitment to making innovation and growth support as accessible as possible.
The ‘Your Tech’ series offers ambitious businesses advice and support with funding, digital marketing, routes to market and innovation. The masterclasses bring together leading industry experts and partners, including InnovateUK Edge, Inventya and Counting King.
Build your networks
Our flexible masterclasses have been developed specifically for entrepreneurs, so they can access the support they need to help them accelerate on their journey to success, with one-to-one business support, networking and peer group mentoring.
We provide an understanding of the current funding landscape and alternative finance options available to digital tech companies, along with practical workshops on how to access them. This includes guidance on grants for business R&D and innovation from InnovateUK for digital businesses, and specialist one-to-one funding support and investment advice.
Salford business support
As part of our commitment to supporting the local community, we’ve partnered with the Salford Credit Union to offer early-stage entrepreneurs from Salford loans and savings services to scale their businesses, ensuring they achieve strong growth.
This first-of-its-kind business model aims to help founders from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds access funds at affordable rates as many start-ups and technology entrepreneurs struggle to secure credit from mainstream lenders. The loans will be subject to entrepreneurs enrolling onto our business and innovation growth programmes.
