The Enterprise Hub will act as a catalyst to support innovation and a diverse range of new businesses with the potential to develop in national and international markets. ASE Ambassador Phil Ridgwell commented ‘We already know athletes have outstanding potential to become successful in business. In their sporting careers, they acquire extraordinary skills that are transferrable to entrepreneurial success.
The enterprise focus will be on the individual, developing entrepreneurial mindsets and behaviours to enable acceleration and growth with virtual support, advice and guidance around issues such as developing quality business plans; investor readiness; understanding responsibilities, finance and the impact of business decisions’
This project aims to take a fresh, creative and collaborative approach to business support and key to the programme are our team of in-house advisors and business coaches who between them have a wealth of skills and commercial experience at senior levels, nationally and internationally across a diverse range of industry sectors.
These highly qualified business coaches and specialist mentors will also provide our aspiring business people with a mix of one-to-one sessions, ongoing workshops and peer-to-peer support.
