How Business Gateway helped Jane design her start-up strategy

When Jane Adams was looking to launch her new business, the experienced interior designer looked to Business Gateway Angus to help her get her venture up and running.

A few months on and Jane’s online interiors design gallery, Author, is racing along, with clients looking to the site for the very best of British designed furniture and accessories.

Jane said:  “I spent a lot of time researching products to allow me to bring together exquisite high quality handmade pieces from talented designers in a series of unique collections.   The way the website is set out makes sourcing and purchasing unusual pieces a pleasure.

“Although I have spent 16 years in interior design I knew I would benefit from some specialist support to launch the business. My adviser at Business Gateway was fantastic and guided me through the myriad of unknowns.  He helped to identify sources of funding and used his extensive contacts to open doors I never knew existed, helping me with T&C’s, networking and taking on my first employee.”
