The Aspire to Grow (A2G) Programme is a free business growth programme available to business owners/senior decision makers from small and medium size enterprises who aim to create sustainable future growth.

The programme has been designed specifically to tackle the issues and meet the needs of individuals running a business.


It includes eight, half-day practical sessions delivered between January and July 2016. Using a combination of business theory, supported by real life examples from business mentors, the workshops are geared towards how the business leader creates and manages growth covering the following subject areas:

  • Strategy
  • Marketing
  • Sales
  • Finance and Governance
  • Leadership
  • Human Resources
  • Operations

The final session will be an opportunity to showcase your plans for growth, building on the tools and frameworks provided throughout the programme.

During the workshops, the group will hear about best practice approaches from guest speakers, will be supported by mentors (e.g. investors, entrepreneurs and coaches), and importantly will learn from each other.

You will develop valuable networks throughout the programme to support your business expansion.

The closing date for submitting applications is Friday 23rd of November.
