What is the Accelerator Programme?
The SME Accelerator Programme has been developed by leading industry experts using best in class methods and approaches that guarantee to provide the right support at the right time for each business to start, survive and thrive.
Diagnostic – a key aspect of delivering successful programmes is to ensure that each participants’ beliefs, behaviours, confidence and competence is assessed early on.
The first stage of the Accelerator programme is to spend 1-2-1 time with each participant as part of the onboarding exercise.
The programme then consists of the following workshops (which can be tailored to demand, need and diagnostic output):
What else do I get?
In addition to the workshops, a tailored programme of mentoring will be delivered.
The mentoring activities fully complement the overall workshop programme allowing participants to deep dive into the areas critical to the needs of their individual business growth and as identified by the concepts, thoughts, and issues developed within the workshops delivered. An agreed approach and mentoring plan are developed in collaboration with each participant.
Each SME will be assessed against existing successful company comparators and a personalised growth plan developed based on the strengths and weaknesses of the individual leading the organisation. Any other gaps and opportunities identified will be clearly recorded and addressed through the mentoring activities.
The SME CofE mentors that have been chosen to support the programme are from a wide variety of backgrounds and bring a wealth of industry experience and networks with a focus on the three biggest enablers on business growth – innovation, internationalisation/new markets, and digital transformation.
