The Staffordshire Business Innovation Centre (Staffs BIC) encourages and promotes innovation within Staffordshire by helping individuals and companies with their start-up ventures and innovations. They offer: one-to-one practical advice; grant funding; workshops; webinars and networking events.
Charlotte commented: “After being introduced to BIC and the services they offer, I met Sandra Butterworth, Director of Innovation, who explained about the start-up grant which covers 37% of Consultancy Fees. Building an online platform such as Techdeck requires hours of software development and extensive specialist advice, so I decided to put in an application. Sandra was extremely helpful and assisted me with the application and provided advice towards my business plan. I was absolutely delighted to find out my application had been successful.”
