Pioneer 10 is a new and exciting, free, business award and growth coaching programme which has evolved over the past 4 years and is open to startups and ambitious SMEs . It began life as the Spark Business Awards operated by Oxford Innovation in Market Harborough, Stockport and the Nottinghamshire area with huge success. Spark has helped over 4000 businesses, many of which have achieved outstanding results. Over the years we have learned a great deal about the requirements of business owners and the key elements they need to achieve success. It is our goal to ensure that every business that interacts with P10 will derive genuine benefit through insightful, in-person workshops and tried and tested online tools. We will select 10 of these businesses to receive one to one coaching and guidance from our experienced business experts. This stage will open up a world of new possibilities for business owners and significantly increase their chance of success. Two of these pioneers will be selected by our panel of judges for a long term, high value, high impact business support package leveraging the resources of Oxford Innovation and partners.
