We offer fully funded tailored business support to London-based SMMEs predominantly (but not exclusively) in the construction, digital and creative and care sectors.
With our help, suppliers learn how to:
- Find out about tendering opportunities relevant to their field of business
- Understand how the procurement process works
- Ensure they have the necessary procedures and policies in place to prove to buyers that they meet quality standards and are ‘fit to supply’
Business Mentoring and Coaching
A structured programme of individual and group support will be provided, following initial business needs assessment diagnostics, via dedicated mentoring and coaching. SMME’s will participate in a series of tailored business support activities which enhance their growth and innovation though the introduction of ‘new to the firm’ products, processes and services, enabling them to develop sales in current and emerging sectors, and to facilitate the retention and creation of jobs.
Access to buyers and contract opportunities
The project will enable SMMEs to look at new and legacy market opportunities, locate new customer bases, and identify and capitalise on new opportunities to grow their business. SMMEs will also have access to a full programme of capacity-building seminars and workshops, and Meet the Buyer, Round Table and Supplier Showcase events.
