First things first,
let’s get you to know more about you first …

We start by arranging an initial discovery call with an Adviser.

We aim to get an understanding of what stage you are at in your journey, and the support you require from us. We will also discuss your business idea, the planning you have undertaken so far, and your next steps.

From this stage, we can then put you in contact with an Adviser, invite you to come along to a drop-in session, and tell you more about the in-depth support available.
