CRATE Boost - Business Support

We’ve developed CRATE Boost to help the UK’s many ambitious small and growing businesses access the best available business support for their needs.

Whichever stage of your business journey you’re at, Boost is there to provide the help you need to reach the next level.


Guidance and support

Finding the right guidance and support to help your business grow can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. CRATE Boost helps you find it faster. We’ve scoured hundreds of information sources serving the UK’s small businesses to sign-post you to outstanding information providers.

Why, when and how

We explain ‘why, when and how’ to use different types of support and back it up with case studies and video tutorials. Our step-by-step approach brings support resource to life. Most of our recommended digital support is freely available, while some require you to register your email address. A select few high-quality providers are paid-for services (we don’t financially benefit from directing you to these providers).


Fresh and relevant

We’ll be keeping Boost fresh, so please make contact if there’s an area you’d like support on but can’t find the answer. Alternatively, please let us know if you’ve found some great content that you’d like to share via CRATE Boost.
