Tailored support to boost your company's potential
Research shows that SMEs accessing external advice are more likely to grow than those without support - but only a small proportion of companies use such services. Recognising the value that a dedicated and experienced adviser can bring, SBC and Winning Pitch have launched a bespoke mentoring programme for small life sciences companies.
Funding from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has enabled the establishment of this year-long programme of mentoring and training. Mentees and mentors will work together over this time period, focussed on the small company's next strategic growth move. Winning Pitch is a specialist in business enhancement through marketing, team building, personal development and customised training, an ideal complement to SBC's sector-specific activities in this expanded programme.
