Award-winning business creation and growth

YTKO Group is a successful, private sector business based in London. Working across the UK and abroad, we bring over 30 years’ private and public sector expertise in supporting new entrepreneurs and established businesses from a wide range of sectors.

 

Sustaining and scaling a business is a challenging journey – we’ve been there.  Through our range of services, spanning start-up, scale-up, and finance, we provide professional, proactive and results-driven support for companies seeking expansion.

In 2006 we set off on a mission in our not for profit work: to support the creation and enable the growth of more than 10,000 companies, who together would contribute more than £1 billion per annum to the British economy by 2020.

 

We smashed that goal four years early!  In the last decade we’ve helped over 15,000 British businesses, and our GetSet community alone turns over more than £1b annually.  Our clients have been creating two new jobs each day every day for the last five years.

How can we make a difference for you today?
