WGN have kindly donated £1000 of accountancy, tax or business advice to our winner.
WGN are a five-Partner firm of Chartered Accountants established in 1975. We know a great deal about starting and growing a new business both from personal experience as well as from the hundreds of clients we have assisted and advised over the last thirty years.
We offer hands on help to our clients, with a down to earth and practical pro-active approach, providing a comprehensive range of financial accountancy and taxation services. We have substantial and wide ranging experience and an extensive network of contacts, which we bring to bear to the benefit of our clients. We are also heavily involved in fund raising, both debt and equity.
In appropriate circumstances, where we believe we can seriously add value to a business situation, including start ups and early stage companies, we may be prepared to “roll up” our fees in return for a small “sweat equity” stake in the business. Using this model we have taken a number of companies from start up to flotation on AIM, others to trade sale, whilst always being deeply involved in a portfolio of companies being groomed for ultimate exit.
For further details of our services and how we operate please refer to our website.
The Entrepreneur's Circle have kindly donated a year lonf membership to our winner, of a value of approximately £1000.
The Entrepreneurs Circle is the The UK’s largest membership organsisation dedicated to helping your business grow.
It is an incredible resource that provides practical help and guidance to UK business owners who want to be super-successful.
Launched in March 2010 it’s led by Yorkshire born entrepreneur Nigel Botterill who has built EIGHT £million+ businesses, from scratch, in the last seven years – so he knows lots about building businesses quickly.
As a member of the Circle you have access to a vast support system, designed to help your business to grow. You can participate in monthly events at both national and local level, get on the phone to Nigel twice a month and talk with him about your opportunity or challenge. You can get your marketing material critiqued by some of the best copy-writers and marketers in the country, you’ll get weekly injections of practical ideas and inspiration and (if you want it) you’ll be held accountable for making sure you do what you say you’re going to do to move your business forward.
“Everything we do in the Circle is 100% practical” says Nigel “There’s none of the bull*** that business owners hate. What’s also important is that me and all my team have been there and done it – and are doing it still. We live in the real world!”
Members say that the Entrepreneurs Circle is the most comprehensive – and best - help and support programme available to UK business owners. “It’s mentoring, teaching, guidance and coaching all rolled into one” explains Nigel “and the impact it’s having on member businesses is nothing short of staggering.”
