FAST TRACK TO GROWTH
Astley Media developed and launched the first annual Fast Track to Growth programme in 2016.
Fast Track to Growth (FT2G) is a membership service that provides free growth support to companies in Devon. We have since carried this out for the third year in 2018.
For FT2G 2018 we secured a strong set of partner companies to cover the different aspects of growth planning for businesses including Aptus UK, Astley Media, Barclays, Buy With Confidence, Commissioning HR, Cosmic, Devon County Council, Logo Creative Partners, PKF Francis Clark, Stephens Scown, Sampson Hall and Trading Standards.
We currently have over 200 members who receive our monthly newsletter with news, blogs, invitations to events and special offers.
All members are invited to our free annual growth day, which this year was held at Rockbeare Manor in April.
22 companies were selected by the FT2G Partners in May for the intensive programme and final pitch event which took place in June. There were two shortlists - one for smaller companies, one for larger companies.
Each had 4 minutes to pitch their growth plans in front of an audience. Two winners, one from each shortlist, were then chosen by the panel of judges to win £10K worth of business support contributed by the partners.
This years winners were House of Harris from the larger company shortlist, and Pixalytics from the smaller company shortlist.
