BUSINESS

HINTS & TIPS

Stimulating new knowledge-based start-ups that will grow into great businesses.

Winning Pitch understands intimately what drives economic growth.  We forge the links and timing between innovation, productivity, human capital and financial investment to drive increased success, and growth.

Winning Pitch, together with Newable Group, have designed and delivered the highest impact growth support services in the UK – providing class leading returns for every £1 of public sector investment.  We have gathered invaluable lessons from “global best practice” Support Formats in the most successful local, regional and national economies.  We draw on all this combined knowledge and experience to produce a tailored programme designed to target the needs and demands of your region – what we term our proven 3D approach: Discover, Define, Drive. 

How Winning Pitch can help generate high quality, resilient growth in your region

We’ll review your economic ‘vital signs’ analysing your local business stock to identify critical strengths and weaknesses so you can make the very best of the assets you have.  Revealing the sectors with genuine competitive edge we’ll review the impacts upon them that current support services are creating.

We’ll map those businesses with the greatest chance of real growth. It will tell you where in your region lie those firms with the best potential for significant quality job creation.

We’ll tell you how well their challenges and constraints have been catered for in the past and what future external support is required to deliver on that potential.

We’ll look for the gaps, identifying all and any areas where those vital businesses and sectors need additional and critical provision.

We’ll demonstrate what works elsewhere. Winning Pitch can show you how other support bodies have successfully designed and funded programmes that address these business’s particular challenges to growth.

Propelling micro businesses to their next phase of growth

LEP regions that have have a disproportionately large stock of well established micro businesses (under 5employees) whose albeit modest growth support needs are currently being ignored. 

Given the high volume of firms that fall into this gap, even a modest growth, perhaps a few jobs each, would have a noticeable and tangible impact on the prosperity of the region.

How Winning Pitch can help propel businesses to their next phase of growth

The single most important issue to help those micro business leaders who want to grow - rather than just survive or make a living - is winning more customers. Winning  Pitch’s own research repeatedly shows Sales and Marketing as their single biggest barrier.

Half-day “boot camps" -  to impart the best practice sales techniques which are learned, practiced and applied with like minded people who inspire action.


Onsite Coaching sessions -  to ensure the new techniques are baked into a live campaign that generates results Information blitz - local University placement or Apprenticeship to plus gaps in data and help to build online tactics


Online resources - surefire customer attraction templates, checklists and learning bites


Performance related payment model based around sales growth is available to share the risks and rewards.

The Group Workshops and 1-2-1 Coaching sessions help establish a turbo charged sales engine to find, win and keep more customers. For many of these businesses, if they can reliably attract a regular stream of new customers whilst growing their existing base frankly their other challenges will look after themselves.

Growing Great Businesses

There is high demand for technology/knowledge-based entrepreneurs targeting new and emerging sectors.  These entrepreneurs are individuals whose aspiration is for more than just “earning a living” even if not always towards super high growth gazelle firms.

A key part of the public sector role is to provide a fertile environment for businesses to start up, thrive and prosper. Often, “generic” initiatives that encourage anyone to “become your own boss” are failing to progress them from the idea stage to win first customer.

 

This can lead to disappointing returns for all parties compared with other more targeted support interventions.  Many areas lack a tailored enterprise support programme aimed at those keen to start a knowledge based business that goes onto form a small firm of say 5-10 employees.
