We are delighted to bring you this third episode of the Fast Growth Business podcast! In this show we introduce Richard Harrison, Director of innovation consultants, Inovaris, who sets out some useful ideas and tips for founders and entrepreneurs on navigating the (often confusing!) world of grants. He also gives us his thoughts on recent (quite abrupt) cut-backs to business support services such as the Business Growth Service following the Autumn Statement.
Our Resource of the Week is ScheduleOnce – this web application is great for those occasions when you’re trying to identify a mutually convenient time for a meeting or call and despite a series of back and forth email suggestions….nothing quite works for you both. Well ScheduleOnce comes to the rescue as you can email a link from this service that interacts with your calendar to serve up dates and times that work for you.
