There is the opportunity to access business consultancy support in addition to the business diagnostic assessment (option 2), or as a standalone piece of work (option 3).  This includes more detailed/directed pieces of consultancy work including, but not limited to:

• Market assessment
• Primary customer analysis
• Business model
• Sales strategy
• Management strategy
• Financing strategy

Proposals for support in other areas that fit broadly with the scope and intentions of Northern Accelerator Innovation Assessment are welcome. Please discuss this with your institution’s Northern Accelerator lead at an early stage.

Innovation Assessment will provide information of value in the preparation of a business plan, but will not fund the writing of a business plan for a spin-out.
