GetSet for Cornwall return


GetSet for Growth has launched back into Cornwall with new funding to help businesses grow.

Thanks to funding from the Regional Growth Fund and building on its previous success working with over 1,000 businesses in Cornwall, GetSet is now back and offering local SMEs access to an enhanced programme of finance and marketing masterclasses.

In addition to strategic business, marketing and finance guidance, the service will play an active role in helping businesses to access finance for growth, building on its 98% success rate for helping clients secure funding, totalling over £3 million to date.

Bev Hurley, chief executive of YTKO Group, said: “Since launching GetSet in 2013, the service has more than proven its success at helping businesses combat the two biggest barriers to growth – finding enough profitable customers and accessing finance.

“This latest investment from the Regional Growth Fund is further validation of this, and we’re delighted to be able to continue our support to businesses in Cornwall.”

GetSet SouthWest project director, Matt Giles, added: “There are so many companies in Cornwall who have the potential to take their business to the next level and it’s great to be back in Cornwall with this unique programme of support that’s already proven its impact on more than 1,000 UK businesses.”
