European Structural Investment Fund (ESIF)

YTKO has led various projects funded through the European Structural Investment Fund (ESIF)

One example, is where we were commissioned by European Structural Investment Fund to lead an Enterprise Coaching service in the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (HOSWLEP). 

The project aims to empower individuals to develop self-employment opportunities and start and sustain micro and small businesses. It supports individuals from the more deprived and disadvantaged areas of Devon, as well as people under-represented in enterprise.

Support activities are delivered across the whole of Devon by YTKO and partners, Torbay Development Agency, The Princes Trust and Devon Communities Together.

A range of enterprise coaching activities for pre-start and start-up businesses are delivered via workshops, face to face support, telephone and online support and e-learning resources.
