GetSet Solent can support ambitious SMEs from all sectors, backgrounds, business models and sizes, provided they have the potential to grow and expand and are registered within the Solent LEP area.
Boogie Mites is a local company who have benefited from GetSet Solent’s support. The company was started by Sue and Harriet in 2007. The idea sprang from Harriet’s love of music. A singer-songwriter, Harriet wrote songs for her daughters and soon developed music workshops for young children. When Sue brought her son to class one day, a partnership was born. Sue saw how Harriet’s workshops support children’s development as well as providing that great feel-good factor.
They currently have 6 franchise businesses and are planning to expand to 10 or more. They were first attracted to GetSet Solent for training support. They then attended several GetSet Solent business events and have been supported as their business has changed direction.
GetSet Solent is a business support programme delivering specialist, fully funded access to finance and marketing support to help businesses with the potential and ambition to grow, through a range of engaging workshops, 1:1 sessions and support to access the GetSet Solent Grant Programme.
