LESL has always brought innovation and fresh new thinking to contract delivery, having identified a requirement to support, new start businesses with ambition and growth potential to achieve their growth more rapidly through the delivery of an accelerator programme, SMART accelerator was developed.
SMART Accelerator comprises a programme of workshops which are further supported with one to one specialist mentoring for each company (as required) following each workshop to ensure that growth is accelerated.
The Smart Accelerator model is largely based on the super coach framework and utilises the latest practices in business incubation support using the widely publicised Business Model Framework: Strategyzer model www.smartaccelerator.co.uk
We have designed and developed an innovative online tool to support pre-start clients in identifying their early requirements. Through a simple online questionnaire client details are captured and clients are provided with a variety of sources of information to help them address their early requirements.
The primary purpose is to ensure that any client facing time with a business adviser is as productive as possible, with some early information already provided through the Ready to Start tool.
