I have found New Frontiers really beneficial both to myself and to the business. YouMiGo has been very much run in-line with New Frontiers, so every module that we did was really applicable and relevant to me – from the very beginning of Market Research right through to the end.
Catherine Dowling, YouMiGo
Having access to professionals in the fields of marketing, finance and business development was transformative for my business. Being part of New Frontiers allowed my concept to find its potential in viable and commercial markets. Being part of a community of fellow early startup entrepreneurs served to both comfort and motivate.
Alma Jordan, AgriKids
The support from the New Frontiers staff was always top quality and any areas of weakness were addressed and opportunities afforded to strengthen and correct these weaknesses. Similarly, if it was felt that a promoter might benefit from support from a new source, then this contact was initiated and followed through.
