Individual Consultancy (Discuss Privately With Our Trainer)

You might want a personal, undivided discreet and special attention just for you. This works better for some people.

Our personal consultant will confidentially evaluate your business idea, counsel you if necessary and coach you on how to answer YouWIN questions appropriately.

Experience tells me that it is not the best business plans that win but the most sellable ones.

Our one-on-one service offers:

–          A discreet and confidential discussion face-to-face, on the phone, or via skype

–          A comprehensive written and one-on-one analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of your business idea

–          Insight into the best way to present your business idea to YouWIN

–          A detailed review of your updated business idea and answers to YouWIN questions

–          A final review before submission

The consultancy begins with an email from us. You will receive the cost of the consultancy as well as a questionaire to help you through the process of building your answers to YouWIN questions.

Note: From experience, the YouWIN business ideas that win the grant are those written passionately from the heart of the applicant.
