Burnley entrepreneur Mike Emmett wanted to set up his own business providing business development and consultancy services to small to medium sized businesses. He heard about the support available for new businesses through the LEAP programme and got in touch.

The support provided

Mike received expert business coaching through Pennine LEAP, supported by the European Regional Development Fund, to help get his business running. Pennine LEAP provides new businesses with access to a four day Boot camp, Human Resources specialists, social enterprise coaching and international trade expertise as well as access to an experienced business mentor for up to two years. Pennine LEAP is delivered by Regenerate Pennine Lancashire and a network of enterprise partners including Enterprise4all and Winning pitch.


Thanks to coaching from Pennine LEAP’s business experts, Mike is on track for growth, with plans to recruit two new members of staff during 2013.


“The Pennine LEAP programme really helped me focus on growing my business. Their coaches are first class and helped me to create a comprehensive business plan as a foundation." - Mike Emmett, Owner, We are just Mike Emmett
