GetSet for Growth Programme

At the start of 2019, there were 5.8m SMEs in UK, of which 5.6 million were registered as micro-businesses which was an indicator that the appeal in developing a business from scratch was far from decline. Our GetSet For Growth Programme helps the micro, small and medium sized businesses which account for 94% of the UK’s businesses as publicly-funded growth support for this diverse and vital sector of the UK’s economy is noticeable by its absence.

GetSet for Growth

We believe in embedding sustainability and unlocking growth potential right from the start.

Our innovative GetSet For Growth programme is for businesses who have the opportunity and ambition to grow, but who need some focused, high quality support and/or investment readiness to enable them to access finance, to unlock and achieve their potential.  Over 7,000 businesses have participated to date.

The GetSet programmes addresses the two biggest barriers facing SMEs across the UK and Europe: business development (sales and marketing) and finance.

  • Growth Programmes
  • 1:1 professional advisor support
  • Training workshops
  • Networking events
  • Online learning resources

Clients usually have a range of support needs, from accessing finance and hiring new people to developing new products and entering new markets. The service helps these businesses achieve sustainable growth by creating or strengthening their marketing and sales strategies, either in tandem or as a standalone service – increasing their know how and confidence and helping create the tactical plans needed for building effective sales pipelines that generate more money from more customers.

GetSet for Growth have helped me to grow my business to a point where I can now concentrate on my future business strategy. I would recommend the programme to any business owners out there who are looking for help or advice in scaling their company.
