    Client Testimonials

    Dont't take our word for it - here's what our clients say

    I just wanted to congratulate the University of Northampton for its initiative in bringing a series of very well organised & informative webinars that are there for the Businesses of Northamptonshire to join and bring questions forward & to then get the help and information that they have been looking for.

    Also from a mental health point of view, they are exceptionally good reaching out and involving people that are struggling for what ever reason in this Corona Virus climate.

    Brackmills Industrial Estate

    The project has been invaluable resource. I couldn’t believe the workshops & support were free, I was a bit worried & nervous about attending the workshops at first, but I realised they were easy to understand & really helped me grow and develop my skill set. Even if you only walk away learning 1 thing, it’s still 1 thing you didn’t know & can help your business.

    I felt encouraged to learn more & wanted too! It made me think about business in a different way & evaluate each stage of my business.


    Bron's Bakes

    Having been within the military and police service for nearly 28 years I had no experience in running a business so it was reassuring to speak to someone who had business experience and was able to give an unbiased opinion and practical advice.

    The grant funding supported us to develop and register the trade mark for our electric shield, which will build up our product portfolio and support the scalability of the business.
