Get Set for Growth

Get Set for Growth Business advisor Lee Hazzard gave an informative presentation on the services that their programme offers as part of the new 'Link4Knowledge' slot at our Chingford Link4Coffee event.

Lee is a seasoned entrepreneur of 15 years and has spent the last ten years creating and assisting start-ups and small business in business plan writing, marketing and investment readiness. Lee has organised professional annual conferences, breakfast meetings and forums for many business sectors and has helped raised over £300,000 for entrepreneurs in the last 18 months.

Get Set for Growth aims to help support East London based SMEs (Waltham Forest, Hackney, Newham, Islington and Tower Hamlets).

Get Set For Growth is a Business Support initiative funded by J.P. Morgan for East London. Their specialisms are helping existing SME's become Investment Ready as well as assisting them to develop marketing strategies that are fine tuned for the purpose of accessing customers - they strongly believe the two go hand in hand - 30 years of experience and success has validated these beliefs.

They are a highly collaborative company with a strong social ethos; over 50% of their business is non profit and many of our projects are aimed at uplifting socially disadvantaged groups either through direct job creation through their start up programme (www.outset.org) or directly supporting particular cohorts (www.enterprising-women.org).

The Get Set for Growth project they are running in East London has already been successful in helping growth SME's in Bournemouth and Cornwall and they will be launching additional Projects in other parts of the country.

The services they will be providing for SME's via Get Set for Growth are fully funded.
