Investing in Growth programme is pleased to announce two new providers of the Investment Readiness support for local SMEs.

Worcestershire County Council are pleased to announce that the Investing in Growth programme which supports SMEs to initiate significant expansion projects has taken on two new providers, Ian Priest and John Painter who will be helping businesses in the region to achieve their growth potential.

Ian has worked in Worcestershire since 1986 and has a strong understanding of the region’s strengths and opportunities for growth.  The insight that Ian provides to businesses who access the 18 hours of free support primarily helps them to both source and then present their case to potential lenders and investors, in a way that they can easily digest and understand.

John Painter has been helping business owners to manage and grow their businesses for many years by helping businesses understand and implement their growth aims. John offers participating businesses support through a blend of coaching and consultancy aimed at providing answers and giving a business direction.

If your business is looking for investment to grow now or are planning for future growth and would value further advice, guidance or support, the 18 hour Investment Readiness assist is available to Worcestershire based SMEs trading predominantly business to business.
