CRL launch BOOST: our brand new business support programme for entrepreneurs



CRL launch brand new business support programme for entrepreneurs

We are pleased to launch BOOST, our brand new business support offer, consisting of tailored sessions in the areas most important to established entrepreneurs. It has been designed to support companies who want to improve their product development and design processes, develop a more robust product to market and retail strategy, secure further investment, and generally improve on business development, leadership and marketing.

We are working with a range of high profile and experienced business leaders and experts to deliver a set of sessions in each area, known as ‘blocks’. Ideally businesses that attend BOOST will be ready to expand and grow their teams, and/or secure further investment. If you think that is you – we can help!

The first sessions offered as part of the BOOST programme:
