Start In South Staffs

Tired of living someone else’s dream? Take control of your life. Help to get your new business venture off to a flying start.

Time, money and knowhow are your most precious of resources… often though, for many business owners, one or all are in short supply. Our purpose is to help you create more of all three to provide you with choices for your business and your life.

We started Good2Great in 2007 to dramatically improve the fortunes of owner operated businesses in Shropshire and the neighbouring counties.

Since then we’ve developed our systems and customer base and now provide regular support to thousands of businesses across the UK.

Match-Funded Start Up Programmes

The beginning of your ‘start-up journey’ is likely to be one of the most exciting things you’ve contemplated. At the same time, though, it may well be one of the most worrying.

The good news is that every member of our coaching team has started and run their own business… We know what it takes and how to best support you so that you can realise your dream of successfully starting and running your own business.

If you're based in South Staffs, you can access all this support for FREE. Match funded grants may be available (subject to eligibility) through the Council.

If you’re based elsewhere, Good2Great can still support you – your personal circumstances will determine what’s available to you, so please register your interest and we’ll have a chat.

How It Works

We didn't want to make any mistakes and being able to learn from experts for free meant we avoided the pitfalls.

Luke Boxall | Worm Soil

Good2Great have been an amazing support and encouragement to me at a time when I felt both excited but also completely overwhelmed. The 8 week programme reassured me that I've been on the right path for most of my journey and has given me lots to explore to make sure my business can succeed right from the outset
