Daniel Newsome

Grant Facilitator

Before joining the Growth Hub, I was a Senior Business Advisor with Outset business start-up. I wrote and delivered sessions in Growth and Innovation as well as Resilience and Sustainability. 

As a business owner myself, I am keen to use my experiences and knowledge to help others. I have developed a range of salsas called The Cornish Salsa co. which is stocked in various outlets across Cornwall.

My background is in further and higher education, formerly managing the foundation degree in water sports at Falmouth. 

In my spare time, I am mainly found at the beach. I have surfed my way around the world in countries including Mexico, Indonesia, South Africa, Peru and Sri Lanka.

Nowadays, I am more likely be found on a Cornish beach with my dog and family in tow.


My perfect day involves a beach, sunshine, perfect waves, family and friends, great food and drink.

If I could give start-up's one piece of advice I'd say find your customer profile!

My skills gap confession: I'm always learning. New challenges can be the most rewarding.
