Atlantic sized ambitions for Scottish bravery-building business

Brave Your Day was launched in October 2017 and approached Business Gateway to support their ambitious growth plans for the company.

About the business

Brave Your Day is an international bravery-building coaching business that creates personalised programmes for clients either in-person, digitally or in print.

Business Gateway was extremely skilled and knowledgeable about what grant and service support could be available to assist building our business to the next level and let us reach our global ambitions.

How Business Gateway has helped

Founded by wife and husband team, Brave Your Day was launched in October 2017 and approached Business Gateway to support their ambitious growth plans for the company.

Business Gateway worked with Charley and Colin to identify a scalable product offering that would allow the company to meet their global aspirations of working across the US and Scotland. They fully utilised all the resources available, including the Expert Help Consultancy Support Programme in Digital Technology, which was valuable in identifying suitable funding and support options across the enterprise network.

Charley Gavigan, CEO and co-founder, said, “Business Gateway offered us expert critical advice, external evaluation and feedback to enable us to take a more focused approach to ways to create a strategy for our business model, products and monetisation.

“They gave us valuable introductions to relevant departments and agencies and identified sources of funding that we were eligible for. Additionally, they provided a fantastic safe and reassuring space to discuss daily business fears and ideas equally.”
