Quick post regarding the business plan for Souter Consulting Limited:

  • I put together a document with my thoughts about how to proceed, immediately on leaving Fujitsu Services
  • Was advised to get in touch with Business Link by Matthew Rippon
    • To get assistance with business start up
    • To get funding for key activities
  • Did so – am based in Northumberland, so am looked after my the relevant team
  • So far, useful assistance
  • Business Link require anyone needing financial assistance to first complete a Business Plan
    • This then gets vetted by BL, and depending on what they think, financing may be available
  • I gave this a first stab, drafting a document based on the template they provided
  • There is also a pot of cash potentially available for those needing help with writing the Business Plans
    • I have been awarded this pot,
  • Getting assistance from Digital City Business on Teesside
    • This includes market analysis
    • Sales packaging of what SCL can offer
    • Next steps & focus on running a successful business
    • Experience with DCB seems pretty good so far – they seem to have thoughts about the longer-term success of SCL, which is refreshing.
  • It needs to be finished by the end of January ‘09

It’s turning out to be a really useful exercise so far. However, the key thing is to win some billable work!
