Business support for the next level 

Business Ready is an innovative business readiness support package primarily for tech-based SMEs with the characteristics and ambition for growth.

Our team assists those with potential and those failing to reach their potential to overcome barriers and grow their business to the next level.

We support tech-based businesses and innovation-led and/or knowledge-based businesses who are located within Warwickshire.

For businesses located outside of Warwickshire, we may still be able to support you; please contact us to discuss your needs, and the options we have available.

Our team assigns business owners and senior teams with a Growth Adviser or a Specialist Mentor who can provide support on one or more strategic area of the business including:

Strategic and business project planning

Strategic Marketing including market assessment, competitor analysis and viability evaluation, through to planning marketing delivery through a variety of media

Access to finance with assistance in identifying funding routes and developing investment readiness.  

Supporting companies in identifying the skills needs in their business along with recruitment and retention strategies

Help to connect companies to Universites and other providers to access related specialist knowledge resources and expertise

Business Ready forms part of the Business Growth Warwickshire programme. It is delivered by University of Warwick Science Park on behalf of Warwickshire County Council and Warwickshire’s five Districts and Borough Councils.

There is no financial investment required to obtain support from the Business Ready Programme, but you will need to spend time to work on your business development.
