ASSETS (Assisting Social Enterprises to Succeed) is an innovative business support programme for social enterprises in the construction industry supply chain who aim to scale their operations and secure larger contracts.
Wates and Impact Hub King’s Cross have developed a pilot business mentoring programme with the shared goal of supporting social or environmental impact-driven suppliers to improve readiness to scale up and successfully compete UK-wide.
This will review your enterprise and scaling plans in depth. The results will inform your individual development plan, to ensure the programme is tailored to your specific needs.
Apply the main challenges and opportunities around scaling to your business. Topics include: Business growth, Bid writing/PQQ completion, Procurement Processes & Negotiation, Pitching, Health & Safety.
Access 6-8 hours per month of support with up to 3 mentors from Wates during Phase 2 and 2-3 hours for alumni support. They will motivate and support you to follow your general business development and achieve your programme goals.
Share amongst your cohort the challenges, best practices, and expertise of your business and industry. Learn from the successes and failures of other scaling social enterprises.
