Our Collaborators

Every business comes to rely on external expertise at one point or another in their journey. Whether it is an accountant, solicitor, marketing agency or a company within your supply chain, having good relationships within the enterprise community is a vital asset.

At TEDCO Business Support, we are able to add value to both new and growing businesses, making introductions and recommending suppliers we trust as part of our work.

“It is those partner relationships that we are constantly looking to cultivate, so that we might refer our clients to suppliers or contractors we know represent quality, value for money and a safe pair of hands. Over time, start-ups may graduate into TEDCO Partners themselves and supply products or services to both the next generation of new enterprises, and also those businesses that supported them through the early stages of growth.


“In this way, we hope to develop TEDCO Partnerships that add value to both our clients and the local economy.”


James Craft, TEDCO CEO
