_"Paul is one of those advisors that is talking from experience rather than from a textbook. These events will save most people a fortune." - Managing Director at Arated.com Corp. Ltd.
"Probably one of the things that made Paul's presentation so useful is not that he has been there and done it (he has) but he generally steers clear of technical speak and simply tells you the steps involved in gaining funding." - Ian Kaye, Business Consultant, Charity Through Action
“For me, Paul is one of the few reliable and affordable sources of information around on funding startups, a "game" which few UK entrepreneurs ever manage to win. His recent shift in emphasis towards bootstrapping is a pragmatic reponse to the increasing funding difficulties all start-ups face. Recommended!” Director of Nanodome Ltd
"Paul has a wealth of experience behind him, not to mention a host of useful contacts and potential speakers. His well-rounded approach makes the event well worth the outlay." -Business Training News
"If you're looking for help with funding and have not been on one of Paul's programmes then I recommend that you put that right asap." - Director Savex ESL Limited
"Paul puts together highly valuable content that brings clarity to important matters for anyone trying to build a fast growth business. I highly recommend Paul's events. Valuable insights and sound advice from someone who has been there and is now on the other side." - Natasha Hussein, Initial AF Data Gatherer, FFCS PPI, Deloitte LLP
“Paul is hugely knowledgeable about the whole field of start-ups and raising funds. He is a fount of good advice – both down-to-earth, street-smart advice and advice on a broader, more strategic level. I would highly recommend him.” - Director of Thinking at Think Inc.
"Those 'Starting your own business' books are right - starting your own business can be a daunting and lonely place to be. However, to a significant extent, not so much if you have one Paul Grant in your corner." - Owner at Shinaii Limited
"I just wanted to email to say "Thank You" for a really, really helpful meeting last Friday morning. It was great to talk through everything with you and to plan for the next stages of growth for the business. I am very excited about getting everything on the 3-6 month Action Plan (Holy Grail!!) underway." - Owner Studio E2R
"I' recommend Paul Grant. Super-knowledgable business advisor and instructor. I attended the 'Funding For Fast Growth' workshop - a great training day that helped me in all of my entrepreneurial endeavours.
Paul's one-page executive summary template remains the single best material on executive summaries I've come across."

"That was SO helpful. Best £45 I've spent this year. Look forward to some one to ones!" - Founder of Disobedient Management
