Who we've helped

Here are a selection of businesses from across Cornwall and Isles of Scilly we have helped. They got in touch for a free business review and gone on to access free business support services to help them to grow their business and work smarter. 

Cohort Hostel
Growth & Skills Hub

In 2011, husband & wife team Lee & Dan Strickland moved to Cornwall from London to run a guest house in St Ives. After three years, while looking for a larger B & B, they discovered the dilapidated St Ives Backpackers building was on the market.

Lee recalls:
Neither of us were classic B&B-ers, however we had both travelled extensively using hostels and so when the St Ives Backpackers came on the market (in 2015) it felt like a no-brainer; we had a real ‘a hostel! Why hadn’t we thought of this before?’ moment.
