Providing high-level strategic support is a key part of Innospace’s incubation process.
While we strongly recommend you produce a formal “business plan” and is necessary for companies seeking to raise finance, we regard supporting the process of business planning as a more interactive process involving our full range of support functions.
Innospace Manager - Business start-ups benefit from having an impartial sounding-board and confidant to help them develop their business. The Innospace Manager can work with the entrepreneur to tailor access to Innospace’s internal support team and its external networks and experts.
Pre-start support – we provide support to pre-start businesses, working with you to help you develop your business idea and prepare for trading. We can refer you our in-house support as well as to external support agencies.
Innospace tenants support– when you join Innospace you tap into the experience of our tenants. Innospace has identified a number of its experienced tenants who can provide expert peer-support to other tenants in the areas of business strategy, ICT, on-line retail, marketing, sales and HR.
Accounts & MIS - key to business planning and strategy is effective gathering and presentation of data. Innospace can help you source a part-time finance director and financial management services to develop your accounts, not just for the VAT returns, but to help provide the information for the company to manage their business effectively.
Professional & external mentors - Innospace has developed a network of professional advisors and mentors that can provide invaluable input on business strategy and at key stages of your business’ growth.
