From Backroom To Boardroom

How to turn the idea you had at 1am – into a multimillion turnover business...

Britain is a nation of inventors and innovators. In cybersecurity and the technology sector this has certainly been proven to be true.

However, many ‘backroom entrepreneurs’ with industry-transforming ideas – fail to succeed (or even start!)

There are two inter-related challenges, impacting peoples ability to move from backroom to boardroom,. Firstly, how to fund your idea enough to start a company? Secondly, managing all the different areas of a business can feel daunting. It's not just about building a great product or service, there are people management, marketing and the dreaded word.. SALES.

The good news is there are simple frameworks and readily available tools, encouragement and expertise to help you build your brand, grow professionally and make your first million.

In this discussion we will share lessons learnt from the ‘front line’ (of making the leap from backroom to boardroom) and deliver detailed insights and tips, gained from years of mentoring SME’s into successful businesses – and where you can make ‘quick wins.

We assure you will leave equipped with a deeper understanding of what is involved in building an innovative business and a formula to accelerate your potential for success.
