The Business Acceleration programme offers mentoring and coaching for more established businesses who are looking to ‘scale-up’. This is more intensive support on an ad-hoc basis, and will be bespoke to the specific business needs. It can cover, for example, specialist advice on bid writing, HR, legal, procurement or engaging with university researchers. It may involve smaller workshop sessions with a number of businesses (up to ten) or more intensive one-to-one support.
