As a leader of a Welsh based business, you'll know the Accelerated Growth Programme is for you if:
- You and your business are primed and ready for your next £2 million+ strategic growth move, but you’re not sure how to get there?
- You’re totally committed to growing your business exponentially even internationally, but you need specialist support in mitigating the risks and overcoming the critical obstacles on your path?
- You recognise that you could achieve faster and more sustainable growth if you were supported by a Coach who had successfully helped other businesses like you to scale. But where do you find them and how can you afford them?
- You accept that the team that got you here won't necessarily get you there. You want to access support to up-skill yourself and develop your team quickly, but where do you go?
- You know you must start networking in different circles with key funding partners, high net worth individuals and other highly ambitious business leaders just like you, but where and how?
If the Accelerated Growth Programme is not for you, alternative business support is available. Please visit the Business Wales website to find out more.
