Being part of the NatWest Accelerator Programme has been a game-changer for SNOAP. This transformative experience has not only accelerated our business growth but also expanded our horizons in ways we never imagined. From gaining invaluable insights to forging meaningful connections, the journey has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Finding Your Tribe

In the world of entrepreneurship, finding your tribe—those like-minded individuals who share your values, passions, and vision—is crucial. These are the people who understand your struggles, celebrate your successes, and offer support when you need it the most. For SNOAP, the NatWest Accelerator Programme has been instrumental in helping us find our tribe.

The programme brought together a diverse group of entrepreneurs and businesses, each with unique perspectives and experiences. This diversity is a treasure trove of knowledge, sparking new ideas and fostering a culture of collaboration. Through shared workshops, mentoring sessions, and networking events, we were able to connect with other participants who, like us, are on a mission to make a positive impact.

The Power of Connection

One of the standout benefits of the NatWest Accelerator Programme has been the opportunity to build trust and connections with other amazing businesses, entrepreneurs and Mentors, such as Julia Adams, who is much more than my Enterprise Manager, she is a friend for life. This network has been instrumental in our growth, providing a platform for knowledge exchange, support, and inspiration.

Among the incredible businesses we've connected with are:

Nina at Tortue UK Nina is an inspiration to us all, managing more than most, with grace and an infectious smile.  Her clothes are fabulous, and I'm a very happy customer.  If, like me, you struggle to know your "look" Nina and her team will expertly style you and find what looks and feels amazing, I would definitely recommend you take a look, I will definitely be going back for more.

Alison is another one of my tribe, her brilliance and willingness to share her knowledge is second to none and I thank her massively for her help.  Alison and Simon created Tickled Moon they create beautiful personalised books for your loved ones to treasure forever, another business I will definitely use.

Helen at Adaptive Clothing UK is truly unique in every way.  Her wonderful "easy use" clothing is revolutionary.  Should your little ones have difficulty dressing and undressing or need clothing that covers them during hospital treatment, Helen has thought of it all.  Not only that, the clothes are super cute with beautiful designs that make the wearer feel amazing too!  Worth a look for sure.

Other truly fabulous businesses that are in my tribe, but I am yet to utilise (it's on the cards) are:

Building a Community of Trust

The relationships we've built through the NatWest Accelerator Programme are more than just professional connections; they are bonds of trust. The shared experiences and collaborative spirit fostered by the programme have created a supportive community where businesses uplift each other.

This network of like-minded entrepreneurs is a priceless asset. Whether it's brainstorming new ideas, seeking advice on overcoming obstacles, or simply sharing our successes and challenges, the trust and camaraderie within this community are unparalleled. Knowing that we have a group of reliable and innovative businesses to turn to gives us confidence and drives us to aim higher.

Looking Ahead

As we continue our journey with the support of the NatWest Accelerator Programme, we are more equipped than ever to achieve our vision for SNOAP. The programme has not only accelerated our growth but also embedded us in a network of trusted and inspiring businesses. This collective strength is a powerful force that propels us forward, ensuring that we can make a lasting impact in our industry and planet.

In conclusion, the NatWest Accelerator Programme has been instrumental in our journey, offering us the tools, support, and community we needed to thrive. The relationships we've built and the lessons we've learned will continue to guide us as we strive to innovate and grow. We are immensely grateful for this opportunity and excited about what the future holds for SNOAP.

Stay connected, stay supportive and together we grow - thank you!
