What We Do

We help high potential SMEs in technology, manufacturing and healthcare to commercialise their business plans and achieve their growth plans through non-executive challenge, guidance and support.

Our 5 executive level directors provide commercial acumen across all sectors, funding expertise and senior level contacts to entrepreneurs in these fast growth sectors.

We understand your sector and the challenges you face and have worked with many business owners to develop tailored solutions.

So often it's not just what you know, but who you know and our strengths lie in both. We will make sure you are following the right business model, with the right funding, at the right time and have the right people by your side.

What We Cost

If we decide to work together, we can discuss the value we will bring and how we will be rewarded through a combination of fees and/or equity.

We don’t:

  • waste your time
  • get paid if we don’t add value
  • work with just anyone

We will:

  • invest time with you at the outset, to genuinely assess whether we can help
  • tailor our fee structures to fit your business, your cash flow and your ambitions
  • commit ourselves wholeheartedly to your future success

There is no risk and no cost to you in getting in touch to see how we can add value to your business...


“Having worked with entrepreneurial businesses for many years we realise the value of practical and commercial input and have come together to provide bespoke solutions that make a real difference”
