Start & Grow

The Start & Grow programme is an initiative specifically designed to provide support to entrepreneurs and their businesses through the first three years in business.

The aim of Start & Grow is to help ambitious businesses to achieve sustainable growth and create jobs. Often, these enterprises will also require early stage finance – something that TEDCO’s business advisors are well-placed to help with.

What we offer

TEDCO delivers dedicated, tailored support to meet the individual needs of the business owner and the business concept. The comprehensive Start & Grow offering includes one-to-one support and advice; workshops and training; mentoring and coaching; and support to source the most appropriate funding available.
