How Business Gateway has helped

Founder Jamie Newall has worked with Business Gateway since it’s initial launch in 2009, and through the service, has accessed many different support programmes as the business has become a UK-wide business.   

Most recently, Jamie worked with Business Gateway to scale up and invest in its digital and software platforms and received support on his growth strategy, as well as Intellectual Property support.
