London’s Central Research Laboratory (CRL) has launched Boost, a brand new business support offer funded by the European Regional Development Fund – meaning no cost to registered companies.
Consisting of tailored sessions in the areas most important to established entrepreneurs, Boost is designed to support companies that 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.
CRL is 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’, with the companies taking part ideally being in the position to expand and grow their teams, and/or secure further investment.
In order to attend Boost, you need to be a registered company, or registered as self-employed, and ready to scale your business from a startup to an SME, or you are already an SME and looking to streamline and grow your business in a certain area (e.g. marketing).
There is no cost to attend sessions, but it is asked that attendees go to a minimum of 12 hours of workshops over the next 12 months, although it is not necessary to attend every session of an individual Boost Block if it is not relevant to you.
