About the course
Learn vital business skills, grow capacity, and build a roadmap to rebound and sustain growth during this time of crisis with this intensive 6-week, online programme for London SME owners.
We have designed the Recover & Grow programme for the current crisis. It is highly practical, builds your knowledge base and capacity, draws on established best practices and emerging promising practices, and enables you to work through challenges and opportunities with business leaders and peers.
The programme will help you take immediate actions to get through the current crisis, decide the right pathway to sustainable growth, and avoid common mistakes.
By the end of 6 weeks, you will have practical tools, a clear plan, additional management support and a network of trusted peers.
So, whether you are a builder, a beautician, a branding company or a brewery, if you are up-and-running, and have the ambition to grow, we encourage you to register your interest for the programme.
We particularly welcome applications from small business owners who are not well connected to established business support services, or who never had an opportunity to receive a business management education, whether you have an ethnic minority background, are a female or disabled entrepreneur, or are based in an outer London borough.
