You’re here because you want to learn more about growing your business. Well you won’t be disappointed. I promise.

Each business begins by starting its operations by launching new products or services. If your small business is thriving right now, congratulations! But don’t rest on your laurels just yet. As a small business grows, it goes through different stages and starts to face new challenges.

As a business owner, you’ll need to keep adapting your strategy to overcome these challenges. What works right now may not continue to work at different stages of small business development.

At Ascend we understand the challenges your business will face at that stage of growth. As we partner together you will confidently enjoy the practical solutions that we will present so you will continue to grow your business.

We will help you with practical and workable tools for business owners  and entrepreneurs like you to grow your business. Working with early stage start-ups through to SME’s with a turnover of up to £5 million, we create long term value and sustainable growth.


So, you’re at the start-up stage with your business…

  • Excited and nervous about your business?
  • Life is frantic? There just aren’t enough hours in the day?
  • Most if not all your focus is on revenue generation?
  • Worried about cash flow?
  • Not sure which things to do when?
  • Finding it challenging to recruit and manage people?


We will help you with:

  • Creating a workable, industry focused business plan for your business.
  • Prioritising your activities.
  • Overcoming mindset barriers
  • Identifying business opportunities
  • Learning new techniques for managing your team.
  • Deepening your knowledge of accounting and finance.
  • Reality-checking that you’re on the right path.
  • Assessing your financing options and what to do next.
  • Clarifying the purpose of building your business.



With many challenges come large opportunities. The major opportunity at this stage is to acquire new customers. You’re starting from zero, so you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.

You can also experiment freely at this stage. You probably haven’t yet invested too much time and energy into doing things one particular way, so you can make quick and frequent changes as you try to find a model that works.
