This Breakthrough 2 day workshop is fully funded which means there is no cost to you. 



The Breakthrough workshop is for new and early stage business owners in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly who are starting strong but are looking to build momentum, perhaps rethink or reassess what they need to do to boost the growth and ensure success of their business. 

The highly practical 2 days are facilitated by our Business Development Managers and will focus on key areas fundamental to the success of a start-up business. 



 On a Breakthrough workshop, we will work with you to: 

– Use the Business Model Canvas to review and develop your business plan

– Learn how to optimise your products/services for your target customer

– Identify the most profitable channels and markets for your business

– Spend time looking at the financials and what they’re telling you

– Review your marketing and brand strategy

– Learn more about securing sources of external finance



The Person and Business Modelling 
We will start by looking at your own strengths as a business owner – what does success look like for you and your business? We’ll help you highlight your key skills and main areas of interest for running your business. We’ll also look at how to create a sustainable business model.

Check out our videos on Business Modelling: Do you have a business model? And the importance of establishing what success looks like for your business: What does success look like for you and for your business?

The Customer and Value Proposition 
We’ll help you identify how your business really adds value to your customers. plus how to group or segment these different customers (and their needs) to help you create meaningful messages.

Marketing and Minimum Viable Product 
The third session will help you review your marketing channels to figure out what works and to make sure you’re getting the most from precious, limited resources.

Revenue Streams and Cost Structure 
Finally, financials that work for all: ensuring customers are happy with the value you offer and pay well for it, generating sufficient income to keep your business growing.


We have supported hundreds of businesses in Cornwall on their new business journey over the years. Hear from one recent attendee, Cathy, owner of Office Caddy, on what she learned from attending the Breakthrough workshop.
