“Starting a business can be very daunting and, at times, quite an isolating experience. Having the XFE team there to support you, including individuals who have specialist knowledge and expertise in access to finance, was really helpful.

Getting going initially can be hard if you don’t have a business background, but XFE were on hand to explain concepts like cash flow and setting up a business plan. It was also really useful to speak to others, like me, on the workshops and to exchange knowledge and solutions to mutual problems.”
