How we've helped TiramisUGO

Growth Hub case study

Business overview

TiramisUGO is freshly prepared in Cornwall using the finest ingredients from Italy and Cornwall. The mascarpone cheese from the Dolomites is mixed with free-range pasteurised Cornish eggs and the pudding is assembled directly in the jar with Savoiardi biscuits perfectly soaked in traditional italian grounded coffee. 

The company is a plastic free champion and they encourage customers to return the jars  to the shop they bought it from or directly to TiramisUGO at market stalls throughout Cornwall to be sterilised and re-used.

They helped us in creating connections and that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it. Business is all about creating connections, networking and building relationships… and thank you for your continuous support as we grow our business. The people of Cornwall need programmes like these as they enable talent to come to life.

How we helped

Ugo got in touch with the Growth Hub at an early stages of TiramisUGO. He didn't know what sort of help their might be but was interested in finding out more to help him set up the business.

He met with our Connector Christina and she discussed with him how he can protect his business idea and branding as well as specific information for food businesses. 

Christina put him in touch with start up business support programme Breakthrough which helps create an action plan for start up businesses with workshops and one to one support.
