The programme is for established SME’s in Worcestershire who have been operating successfully and have an ambitious mindset for further growth. Ideally trading for a minimum of three years, with 5+ employees and already a growth champion, the next step will bring new challenges and require innovative solutions.
Is Elevate for your Business?
