The Business Clinic Organisation
Core Aims and Objectives
The Business Clinic Organisation is a Community Interest Company (CIC), dedicated to the provision of high quality business clinic seminars and workshops to the general business community. Specifically for those new and young businesses minus 6 months to 5 years old.
As a (CIC) we are dedicated to using our profits and assets for the public good with our chosen community being small and new business in need of practical support through advice and guidance.
The organisations aim is to assist and prevent businesses being starved of quality and tailored advice that will assist with their stability and growth during the early stages of their development. This will provide stabilisers until the new business has the confidence and ability to ride free.
The range of clinics provided will be complimentary and supported by a consulting member base. These clinics will be beneficial to all members and the wider business community, as you will be sharing a wealth of expertise and experience.
The BCO will also be working in conjunction with the Studholme Bell Foundation (Registered Charity No 1149095) to assist with the raising of funds and the distribution of services with the aim of sustainable job creation through self employment.
The organisation will operate via bi-weekly business surgeries and aim to be much more than just groups of business people meeting to assist with business development. In the wider community we will be the first option for members to receiver peer to peer general business advice and support in the region.
The BCO is not a networking group and will not compete with current service providers and networking referral groups, we will complement by being the bridge between the two. The BCO will ensure that new businesses are ready to get the best from networking and referral marketing ensuring the initial engagement experience with this sector is a positive one.
It has been identified that there is a gap in the present support and guidance available to businesses, after the help available at pre start and at start-up. What is available can be either poor quality, generic or at a relatively high cost for a new business, via business consultants and professionals. In other words, the support really needed cannot always be afforded until it is not really needed.
