OxLEP Business and partners deliver a number of support programmes for Oxfordshire's business community.

OxLEP's Start Up Club

The OxLEP Start-Up Club is to support individuals who are thinking of starting their own business, or businesses who are looking for some help with pivoting their plans in light of the pandemic.

Run by OxLEPs Business Advisors, we will provide webinars and content designed to support Oxfordshire businesses that are pre-start, starting up or are in their early stages in order to help them thrive and succeed.

From joining these short webinars you may also be able to receive 1-2-1 support on how to be resilient and sustain your business during uncertain times. You will also meet like minded peers to share your challenges and successes with.

Mentoring, Coaching and Advice

With over 20 experienced advisors to choose from, you can access mentoring, coaching or business advice, to explore overcoming business challenges and developing your organisation in the following areas:

  • Business Planning and Resilience
  • Customer Demand / Sales & Marketing
  • Finance & Cash-flow
  • Your organisation and processes

Foundations to Growth

OxLEP Business are inviting ambitious and passionate Start-Up and Growth Businesses to join the Foundations to Growth Network. Participating will help you gain new perspectives, inspire new ideas and change your way of thinking. It can also help you form new contacts, build networks and gain valuable professional and personal support.

Non-Executive Director (NED) For a Day

Established businesses can apply for 8 hours of intense support with one of our business Advisors who have the credibility to be a “NED” (Non-Executive Director) for the day.

The vast and varied experience of our Business Advisors means we are in a great position to be able to offer businesses the type of insight you would receive if you had your own board of Non-Executive Directors!

Small Business Accelerator

OxLEP Business’ “Small Business Accelerator” is a five-week programme for start-ups and early-stage entrepreneurs.

It is designed to support individuals who are thinking of starting their own business, or businesses who are looking for some help with developing their early-stage business or pivoting their plans.
