One To One Advice And Business Planning
It often helps to talk through a new idea with an unbiased third party. Many businesses use this facility before making an approach to a bank or other potential funding body. We can also help with the business planning process in a practical way, by linking up with our Business Information Service to provide the overview or background you need.
- Access To Funding
Our business advisers are well versed in the eligibility criteria for many of the schemes of financial assistance on offer. They'll help you search for grants appropriate for your business and have a proven track record in accessing these funds including our own West Lothian Business Change Fund. And where financial assistance is unlikely to be forthcoming, they'll give you a straightforward answer.
- Business Programmes And Seminars
Business Gateway West Lothian run a full schedule of events, seminars and programmes, designed to keep you informed and up-to-date on subjects such as Management Development, Marketing and e-Business.
FREE Business Healthchecks
The aim is to help businesses to review every aspect of their operations to ensure that they are fit for purpose and meet the needs of a changing world. A business healthcheck will help local business owners to review the key areas of their business; provide a structure to prioritise and plan for change and provide a management tool to measure the impact of change.
- Business Information Service
Our professional approach to sourcing the information you need for your business could save you time and money and give you a real competitive advantage. The Business Information Service can benefit your company in so many different ways - whether you're just at the stage of writing your business plan, or are planning to develop and expand overseas.
