Start-Up Support

YTKO has extensive experience of delivering business start-up support programmes across the UK. Our award-winning Outset programme includes not only the general start-up advice essential for all entrepreneurs, but also in-depth training on key business issues for high growth start-ups and young businesses.

Our experience in delivering the Outset programme as lead accountable body, delivery partner and sub-contractor has also allowed us to develop a tried and tested implementation process. This ensures that we can not only provide a rapid roll-out of support services but can do so using processes and procedures that are compliant with the most stringent monitoring and audit requirements including ERDF/ESF compliance.

Our start-up support services

We also provide tailored start-up support programmes, focused on specific industry sectors or demographic profiles.

We facilitate online forums via our interactive learning portal Outset Online for those who have completed one of our programmes. This encourages the development of a collaborative community of entrepreneurs, allowing business owners to post questions, receive advice and discuss how to continue with their business development.
