Accidental Business School, the organisation which provides support for young companies, has launched a Survival Pack to help businesses help each other.
The low-cost kit comes complete with a guide to establishing a valuable peer-to-peer network, allowing businesses to work together to achieve growth.
It has been developed by the Accidental Business School, which built its reputation on a series of unconventional workshops designed especially for business owners who feel out of place in the corporate world.
In addition to instructions and materials for training exercises, the kit includes a free business book, access to the Accidental Business School online monthly bookclub, a pass to an exclusive LinkedIn networking group, and biscuits, because an army can’t march on an empty stomach.
Isla Wilson, who founded the Accidental Business School, said: “We specialise in accidental entrepreneurs, which is anyone who is in business working for themselves but who doesn’t think of themselves as a traditional business person.
“These people can either feel like a maverick or a fraud on any given day, so our Survival Pack is designed to get them communicating with their peer groups. They will see that they aren’t alone and that they can both help and be helped by others in their network.”
Prices range from £29 per month for the standard Ooomph package, through to £99 for the Super-charged Ooomphonics kit. Each is ideally suited for groups of between three and eight users per network.
Isla added: “We know that many struggle to find advice and support that is affordable and truly tailored to what they need, and that’s why peer-to-peer support is incredibly valuable to anyone in business. It’s support from people you trust on your own timetable.”
