Rationale: Sectors such as tech, the built environment and renewables, are growing very fast.

However, many companies in these sectors are compromised by the availability of a pool of skilled workers to fill new jobs.


For many companies, this is THE single biggest obstacle to growth that they face. As a strategic priority, companies must do much more to ensure they are the winners in the war for talent. 

For the best candidates in the market, salary is not the issue - they can name their price - they want to know about 

  • Progression routes

  • Culture

  • Behaviours and values 

  • What a company has to say about carbon/ poverty/ homelessness

  • Who is the CEO/Managing Director and what do they stand for?

  • Is the business an island or does it reach out to the community?

  • Is it open and transparent, will my opinion be sought and does it count?

  • Do staff have the opportunity to challenge or must they conform?

  • Will I meet interesting people?

  • Will I have fun!

Rationale: Many companies recognise the fastest route to growth is via external investment and, in particular, venture capital. 

Convincing investors that your business is a winner, depends on many factors, including the strength of your business plan and the confidence investors have in the management team. Getting the right level of investment at the right time in the growth cycle will be a game-changer for many companies, especially those wishing to look long term towards an exit strategy.

We offer a six-month Investment-Ready programme that prepares a company and its management team for this all-important challenge.


  • Strategic advice from a leading North East investor, Chair and Non-Exec

  • Video featuring the management team that can be sent to potential investors as a first glimpse of the business and also placed on the company website and social channels

  • Prepare the management team for first stage interviews with investors to include presentation skills and production of materials

  • Review of website and social channels to ensure these ‘front of house’ channels are providing investors with messages that build confidence and show a company that has a clear position in its chosen market

  • Prepare the senior management team for interview by the news media

  • Build a positive profile of the business and its management team in important trade media in advance of seeking funding
