Our goal is to generate inclusive economic growth.
Enabling Enterprise: Creating Inclusive Supply Chains
A programme supporting diverse entrepreneurs grow and connect with new markets/access new supply chains.
This project is supported by JP Morgan Chase Foundation, through what is their third grant to Newable. We have been working with the foundation since 2015 to support local businesses grow.
The programme will support 150 SMEs, 65% (98) of which will be Female owned. Throughout the programme we will deliver:
– 15 workshops
Topics such as Accessing Finance for Growth, Routes to Market, Fit to Supply, Pitching, Costing & Pricing. Workshops are designed to be delivered to a group of 10-15 attendees, allowing group discussion while also enabling individual issues to be voiced.
– 6 meet the buyer events
SMEs are matched with a buyer looking for their product/service and given the unique opportunity to have a 15-20 minute pitch meeting with a buyer
– 9 procurement clubs
Networking sessions where entrepreneurs can exchange best practice and experience with each other
– Average of 14 hours of one to one support per SME
Tailored and in-depth business support advice, delivered on a one to one basis.
Fuelling Ambition– Supporting women in business
Fuelling Ambition is Newable’s support programme for women entrepreneurs, providing inspiration as well as practical guidance and advice. We help ambitious business women with bespoke support to access funding and finance, protect intellectual property, develop a business strategy, internationalise, product and market alignment, supply chain efficiency, mentoring and business expansion. Our team works closely with the Innovate UK’s Women in Innovation Awards.
Promoting diversity and inclusion in business
Newable champions diversity and inclusion in business. As part of this ambition, we delivered the London Diverse Entrepreneurs Summit at City Hall for the Mayor of London and London Growth Hub with 100+ businesses from under-represented groups, organised a Global Business Innovation Programme with Israel for 15 UK female-led AI & Data businesses and the Fuelling Ambition Conference with 450+ London women entrepreneurs. We believe confidence transforms.
