Helping ambitious SMEs to grow despite government cuts


Last week, it was announced as part of the government’s Autumn Spending Review that the Business Growth Service will wind down with immediate effect. This came as a surprise to most entrepreneurs and small business owners, many of whom have had significant success with growing their businesses thanks to the scheme.

The Business Growth Service, which incorporated Growth Accelerator and the Manufactory Advisory Service, worked in part by offering match funding, but also by exposing businesses to experienced growth experts who can help business owners take a step back and refocus their growth strategy.

Here at May, we have two team members who were accredited Growth Accelerator coaches, and we saw first-hand the benefit of the scheme when it came to helping ambitious SMEs grow. Though the funding will no longer be available, we are carrying on as before. We are committed to helping businesses propel themselves forward by developing their brand and marketing strategies, ensuring they build and shape their future.

At May, we also love challenges and getting under the skin of any business in order to help its owners meet their individual business needs. We will always work with you, not just for you and we will partner with you as an extension of your marketing team. We’re passionate about making a difference, delivering first class work and driving change. If this sounds like something you and your business could benefit from, then get in touch.
