The New Frontiers Programme has benefitted my business beyond my greatest expectation, it encourages action within us all and seems to overcome procrastination with ease. I would strongly encourage anyone who is considering this programme to grasp this opportunity with both hands. It encourages excellence and provides untold knowledge and help for start-up businesses. I am certainly delighted I did!
