What our clients say
"I'd like to thank Craig and Caroline for running the recent Business Support Workshop - I found the last two days to be a very positive experience. The content was great and the guest speakers provided plenty of nuggets of valuable advice.
I can see why the Doncaster Chamber was awarded the Chamber of the Year award. Thanks again for your support, help and advice." David Jubb, Pre Start
“Launchpad’s support has been invaluable in the setting up of my business. The lovely staff at Launchpad encouraged me to attend their seminars and workshops as often as I could, which I did and am extremely grateful for. They were interested in my progress and were continually asking how they could help or improve their service.
As a result of their support, I now have a business that is drawing in clients and steadily beginning to grow. I couldn’t have done it by myself - that’s for sure.” Amy Pearson, Liberation Tattoo Removal
“The Launchpad programme was very beneficial in giving support and insight when starting up a new business. The workshops that were provided were geared and targeted around the needs of new start-ups and gave great guidance and support in many fundamental areas, which any company would benefit from if they are just starting out.
I would recommend Launchpad for any new business starting out and looking to get ahead, to focus and direct their efforts towards success.” Mike Turner (CeMap), Syron Mainwaring Financial Limited
“After hearing about the Launchpad programme, I instantly decided to learn more. As a new business it offered me advice and help in sectors which I didn’t have too much knowledge. It also provided me with a great opportunity to network and meet others conveniently. Overall the workshops were well presented and contained information and fundamental steps to help me grow my business. The fact that they were free made it even better, as many start-ups like ourselves struggle for cash flow.
I would highly recommend the Launchpad programme to any SME in the area who is looking to expand and grow their business.” Matthew Milan, Devleaf
“Through the Launchpad scheme I have gained invaluable skills on how to run by own business by attending various workshops and accessing support from my personal advisor in areas such as book keeping and tax returns, using social media effectively and how to network at events.
I have recently received advice and guidance on expanding my business by employing staff and the types of contracts to consider when doing so, as well as accessing HR support.
The support available for start-up businesses is brilliant and the staff are extremely helpful and supportive. I would highly recommend Launchpad to anybody who is thinking about starting their own business.” Andrew Sheldrake, Miniwheelers
“I have received invaluable help and support from all the staff at Doncaster Chamber, including the one on one support to help me structure my business plan. I now have a plan of how to move my business forward. I was also put in touch with a mentor, and have attended several workshops and networking groups. I feel I now have a better understanding of how to promote and grow my business. I would highly recommend anyone looking to start up a business to take advantage of all the amazing and invaluable help and support Launchpad can offer.” Linda Nurse, REVIVE Holistic Beauty Therapy
