The Pioneer 10 Harborough 2018 - Applications Closed 

 Applications for the 2018 Pioneer 10 Harborough Programme are now closed, and we have begun the shortlisting process. 

The chosen 10 pioneers, their mentors and specialist support teams will arrange to meet in the coming weeks to present on the growth plans, progress achieved and how they have used the advice and guidance to steer their businesses forwards. Our Judges will then vote on which Pioneer has made the most progress and has opened up the greatest business opportunity.


Pioneer 10 Business Programme 2018

  This year’s Pioneer 10 programme has already begun, with a range of workshops available to businesses in the area and comprehensive Growth Reviews to help accelerate growth and address barriers holding businesses back.

Selection process

To apply to become a Pioneer you need to complete a short online questionnaire. The application process takes around 20 minutes. Our expert panel will assess all applications and create a shortlist based on scalability, profit potential, and relevant experience. There is then a more detailed online assessment to select the top ten.

These ten will then take part in an intensive growth programme of specialist coaching and support, and can pitch to receive long-term business coaching and office space.
