GetSet is now available to SME's in 5 East London Boroughs - Hackney, Newham, Islington, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. Fully funded by J.P. Morgan, it offers free advice and support to growing businesses with principal trading or registered addresses in the area.
Ambitious business owners across East London, looking to take their business to the next level, are invited to take advantage of GetSet for Growth, a new, fully funded service designed to help SMEs overcome the two biggest barriers to growth; access to finance and finding profitable customers.
The GetSet service, which has already supported the growth of over 1,000 UK businesses, is now freely available to eligible businesses across Hackney, Newham, Waltham Forest, Islington and Tower Hamlets, thanks to generous funding from J.P. Morgan.
GetSet will assist businesses with a flexible range of training workshops, masterclasses and 1:1's. A team of experienced marketing and finance professionals will work closely with clients, helping them to improve their competence in business and finance planning, create effective marketing and sales strategies and identify the best sources of funding for them.
Team Leader and Business Advisor, Lee Hazzard, says: "Many businesses are ambitious to grow, but get stuck along the way. The challenges of creating sound business plans and marketing strategies or navigating the complex funding landscape can seem daunting. We offer first hand experience of creating and growing successful businesses giving clients the support they need to develop their understanding and skills in these areas so that they gain the clarity and confidence they need to become investment ready."
Businesses supported by GetSet trumpet the benefits of the service celebrating increases in turnover and profitability, new business collaborations, expansion into new markets and successful applications for finance. To date over £5,400,000 has been raised for clients, helping them to achieve their business ambitions.
Dean Haney, Managing Director of Selletronics says, "Working with GetSet was very refreshing. It is always useful to have a fresh pair of eyes cast across your business. It is all too easy to become blinkered and fail to notice details that seem obvious to others, but with their help we have secured a match funding grant of £50,000 that will help us further develop our business."
GetSet For Growth's London service builds on the success of an earlier partnership with J.P. Morgan in Bournemouth, and an ongoing flagship programme in Cornwall, addressing a gap in the market for high quality, professional and strategic support for growing SMEs.
