Go for Growth 2024

Following the successful delivery of the Go for Growth programme in 2023, Digital Islands is now running a new business support programme in 2024. 

What To Expect
Participants in the Go for Growth programme will benefit from a comprehensive 1:1 business health-check, conducted by an experienced business advisor, resulting in a Growth Action Plan. To help achieve the Action Plan, the programme provides 3 hours of expert guidance in a chosen specialism, enhancing the practical knowledge of participants.

The programme also includes a one-day training workshop covering essential business pillars: Marketing, Technology, People, and Finance. As well as access to six bespoke e-learning courses, specifically developed for Isle of Wight business owners.

Also included is access to the Go for Growth Business Hub with free membership to the online community, access to online events and helpful business resources.

For businesses with 10 or fewer employees, Go for Growth also includes a valuable addition: a 12-month membership with the Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce. This membership grants unlimited access to HR and legal experts, specialist advice on tax and VAT issues, and essential legal coverage. Members will have access to an extensive range of resources for employment, health & safety management, and comprehensive insurance for managing HMRC enquiries.

Helen Cunningham, who runs an Island business Tiny Homes Holidays, participated in Go for Growth last year. She comments: “I was a bit hesitant at first, but then I thought ‘Well why not, it’s free, I’ll give it a go’, and I was really surprised. Go for Growth had a really positive impact on me, and I was able to see a clear marketing plan going forward. It was so refreshing to talk to other people about the business and not be trying to sell them anything!”

Leigh Jackman, from The Isle of Wight Gin Co, Go for Growth has: “…really helped us focus on where we’re going as a brand, it’s brilliant. Also, through the networking, we’ve met some fantastic companies on the Island. The peer-to-peer information has been phenomenal and it’s given us the chance to build confidence.”
