GetSet for Growth – Solent

Our fully funded growth support to help local Solent businesses grow


Getset Solent is a business support programme delivering specialist, fully funded access to finance and marketing support to help businesses with the potential and ambition to grow, through a range of engaging workshops, 1:1 sessions and support to access the GetSet Solent Grant Programme.

The programme focuses on helping businesses overcome the two biggest barriers to growth – generating sufficient profitable customers and accessing finance. We aim to increase your knowledge and skills, giving you the clarity and confidence to achieve your growth potential.

Our national service has already supported over 7,000 businesses across the UK that are looking to grow, who collectively turnover £2 billion. We’ve helped them raise over £70 million in growth finance, and to create over 3,000 jobs.

GetSet Solent is available to SMEs across the Solent area, delivered by YTKO and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Businesses that are eligible for the programme will benefit from strategic and highly practical growth workshops as well as hands-on 1:1 support relevant to their individual business challenges. For clients with exciting plans for growth, we can also support access to a grant programme.
