Funding to Move your Business up a Gear


Hiring the right sales and technical personnel can be the key to your business prospering, but staff costs are often the largest overhead a company faces.

Sourcing specialist consultancy advice or finding the right person with the right skills for your business can be a challenge, while partnering with academic institutes can be complex.
