Free Business Coaching for 6 Months?

Enterprise is an area that clearly defines NatWest. As the UK’s biggest bank for business, we understand that SMEs are the lifeblood of the economy and that we have a responsibility to help them build back better.

At the heart of our support for entrepreneurs is our comprehensive Accelerator programme including fully funded mentoring, insight and bespoke coaching, specifically designed to meet the needs of business owners who want to grow and scale their business, regardless of geographic location or sector. We provide entrepreneurs with full wrap-around care, thought leadership, connectivity and access to our shared workspace, all crucial for their success and a strong national economy.

We know that every entrepreneur is different and that the motivations for scaling a business can vary greatly. We also recognise the power of being surrounded by a network of likeminded individuals and specialists which is why we have crafted four distinct pathways; High Growth, FinTech, Purpose Led and Climate Focussed. Developed over the past five years, these programmes have revolutionised the way we support entrepreneurs, and has proven to really work.

Alongside our Accelerator we also offer 24/7 free access to our online support portal Business Builder for all businesses- regardless of stage or size- which includes tools, templates, videos and events plus a live community hosted on Facebook.
