Business Coaching

Our highly skilled, entrepreneurial coaches help you understand how to get your business from where it is now to where you want it to be.

They will give you the tools to help you become more independent in your decision making and agree realistic targets and timeframes.

Depending on availability, you are allowed up to one session a month, if that is what your coach recommends – it could be that a two or three month gap between sessions is more appropriate.

Get started

Gain access to a Business Coach

The first step to gaining business coaching is to engage with the Enterprise Lab team and ensure that we know where you are with your idea. The best way of doing this is via an Idea Surgery, and by completing an Idea Canvas.

If you can demonstrate that you are:

  • taking proactive steps to test your assumptions
  • exploring the problem you are trying to solve
  • engaging with your potential customers

In other words, if you are doing substantive work to move your venture forward, then you may be eligible for Business Coaching. You may well be asked to complete a number of further actions before access to Business Coaching is approved.
