Let’s Do Business were helpful, innovative, efficient and flexible, the fact that my interview was done via Skype was hugely helpful to me and their tone was professional without being patronising.
The Start-Up Loan was fundamental to the opening of my new store, Core Running in St. Leonards. Alongside this, the support enabled me to complete a business plan and in my first month of opening, we had already exceeded our sales targets.
The Start Up Loans scheme was hugely helpful. It would have been almost impossible without the loan. We’re pleased with the wealth of support we received launching HM!HB!
My mentor has been fantastic. He has met with me on several occasions over the year. I found it incredibly useful to discuss the business proposition with him and my plans for future expansion. I think the offer of a mentor is a very valuable part of the process.
Setting up TriSwim has been a labour of love, and I couldn’t have done it without the help and guidance of Let’s Do Business.
The Let’s Do Business Group was pivotal in helping bring Just Add Wine to market and facilitate our launch with Sainsbury’s.
“The loan and grant coordinators expect to see a working plan, they insisted we shape up our figures and projections. This helped educate us and in turn, gave them confidence in lending.”
My mentor has been great, she’s helped and advised me on where I could source supplies and equipment from to get me up and running. She acts as a soundboard for any worries I may have and offers support whenever needed.
