The National Centre for Micro Business collaborates with partners to bring access to these two important areas of support. Start&Grow is a Government funded programme and Virgin Loans is provided by the Virgin group. The information below sets out the basic information but for details as to how to proceed please contact us.
The Start&Grow programme provides a range of premium pre and post start support to individuals looking to start a business. Clients must have aspiration and the capability to make the business a success. The programme is available to those looking to start a business which expects to employ people from its early stages and where start-up financing will be required to get the venture off the ground. The support provided is tailored to the individual needs of the owner and the business idea, and could include one to one support and advice, workshops and training, mentoring and help to access appropriate start up funding.
