Many successful leaders feel that the growth of their business is hampered by a lack of funding.

• You'll understand who to contact about sources of potential finance
• You will be able to build a strong management team (key to attracting investment) by accessing up to £2,000 match funding for your senior managers to undertake leadership and management training

How do I benefit from this support?

Founded in 2004, NBC Group is the UK’s leading solutions provider for three main markets; homeland security, emergency management and disaster response, offering a wide range of solutions for any emergency incident – big or small.

How GrowthAccelerator has helped

Providing NBC Group with the benefit of an external and fresh perspective enabled the management team to re-evaluate their current finances, strategy, and to drive a more dynamic approach to staff management. In addition, following GrowthAccelerator’s support in raising additional finances, NBC Group is now in a stronger position to grow domestically and internationally. With an international military contract secured, NBC Group can continue to break new markets with the assurance of funding to support its growing business.

Dave Watson, Managing and Board Director at NBC Group, said: “Every MD talks about growth, but GrowthAccelerator allowed me to really sit down and focus. In my case that meant crunching numbers, working out what resource structure was required, the roles employees could take on, and the impact we could have as a result.”
