Boost’s Business Relationship Management is a professional and impartial service delivered by experienced business people. It’s focused on helping Lancashire’s ambitious businesses by providing advice and matching them to relevant funded support programmes. Support available includes: mentoring, business masterclasses, product development, leadership development, skills training and help with accessing finance.

With so much support available in Lancashire, our impartial and professional advice can save your business time and ensure the support offered is relevant and valuable to your business.

Our team collectively have more than 150 years of experience in advising and supporting growing businesses. Your business relationship manager will meet with you for a robust growth-focussed conversation designed to identify your objectives, what challenges and opportunities you face in growing your business and determining what support is most appropriate for you. They’ll work with you to develop a tailored action plan detailing what support is appropriate (and in what order) before introducing you to the support providers.

The support doesn’t end there though. We will stay in regular contact with you to ensure that your plan is on track, provide prompts to help you along the way, and suggest additional relevant support opportunities for your business.

If you haven’t accessed publicly funded business support before, or for a while, this service offers an excellent introduction to what’s available in Lancashire right now.
