Aldershot Enterprise Centre

I wanted to pass on my huge gratitude for the support both Lorna and Jo have provided over the past couple of months.

Moving is stressful at the best of times, especially when there are elements that remain out of our control, but both Lorna and Jo have gone above and beyond to support the move over to the new building.

They have made themselves accessible, including coming back into work on a Sunday evening because my removal company didn’t take the furniture from the old building.

They have continued this work with a smile on their face and have represented the WSX brand with the highest levels of professionalism while remaining personable.

They are both such an asset to the organisation.

This is the most amazing business community space that has been developed and I don’t hesitate to recommend it to others.

This has got to be the best business decision I made.
The support, help to grow and community feel within the building is priceless.
The management goes above & beyond to make sure all the tenants are happy – 5* isn’t enough!
Thank you

It gave me the confidence and motivation to push ahead with the business. I was a bit nervous in talking to people about business but now I am more confident in communicating. Step by step with Julie increased my confidence.

The 1-2-1 time validated the way forward to grow my business and facilitated an environment where plans could be robustly tested. Part of the experience was not being alone in the business world. As a sole trader, it is important to understand the wider business community which online and in-person events have enabled. Throughout the takeaways were doable and the ability to discuss the thoughts and processes on expansion was invaluable

I was really impressed with the 1-2-1 session. Steve was able to help me see the need to develop in a direction I was resisting. I’ve since discovered ways to grow my business that fit with our aims and our ethos. It requires investment which is the next stage for us.

By far the biggest single impact of the grant is that without it, we may not have made the decision to move the bakery.

It has been a huge project, the largest we have ever carried out. The money was key.

Also important was the message the grant availability exudes i.e, showing that our business is thriving. Ultimately it is enabling us to undertake something that society wants, and our company’s growth is a positive thing.

I believe this was influential in our taking the plunge.

Julie has given me so much support and valuable advice. Without her, I wouldn’t have been able to obtain such useful information and achieve my goal in such a short space of time.

I would thoroughly recommend WSX Enterprise following my experience with them.

I was given a business advisor with whom I had an initial 1-2-1 session in which he gave me good advice and suggested a grant application I could apply for. The business advisor was available for me to call throughout, providing continuity, and was very supportive throughout the whole application process.

Julie was a great advisor throughout. Always extremely helpful and happy to explain everything and anything in as much detail as possible.

Her genuine interest in my business meant she was able to have a better understanding of what exactly she needed to advise on, to help me with the growth and expansion of it all.

I cannot recommend the support from the Transformational Business Support team enough.

Anyone wanting to explore business growth with a skilled, expert business advisor should take up the offer of support. Whether it is a specific challenge you are facing or, like me, a lack of clarity around direction, they will provide unbiased and professional advice.

In addition, you will have access to hundreds of resources to help support you in your business.

We have had an excellent and fruitful experience with the Dorset Growth Hub. They took an interest in our digital transformation project to support our further growth and with the support of their grant scheme, we were able to broaden the scope of what we had originally conceived. The grant application and claim process was clearly and professionally communicated with us and we had a seamless experience dealing with the same advisor from start to finish.

WSX offered great support for our business growth during challenging pandemic times.

With their assistance, we were guided in preparing our business plan and cash flow forecast which enabled us to receive much-needed funding to grow our businesses. With this support, we have managed to add two additional staff members to our team with the aim to grow again in 2022-23.

When I go for one of my regular meetings with Julie, it’s like I’m just going to meet a friend who knows about business.

She is a lovely lady, always there whenever I need her. I can ask any question and she will respond. If she doesn’t know the answer herself, she will look into it.

My business advisor just sat next to me and that gave me confidence.

In fact, she gave me my confidence back.

We had been in regular contact with a Growth Advisor from the DGH for a few years and when we were planning a significant project had no hesitation in asking if there was any financial assistance required.

We were delighted to accept the support provided and it was well worth the very modest effort in securing a grant.

The grant application process gave us confidence in our plans and made a great contribution to the investment required.

Julie is the sweetest, most welcoming person and I really looked forward to our chats!

She gave me so much information every chat but never overwhelmed me. Although I haven’t used all the techniques yet I know I have a load of priceless information to use in my career and I can move forward knowing I am doing everything right, especially legal requirements, which is something I didn’t realise how little I knew of!

I can highly recommend this to widen your knowledge so your path becomes clearer for your journey ahead!

Jess Aspin


Dorset Growth Hub

To be honest, we were cautious at first about embarking on seeking grant finance from DGH. We thought it may be overbearing in terms of effort.

However, we had an informative discussion with a DGH advisor and they gave us the confidence to proceed. The process from there was simple and straightforward with the advisor steering us through the process.

I’m so glad we went for it and would recommend any business looking to make a significant capital investment has a chat with them.

Julie from WSX Enterprise was amazing.

I was a complete business novice. Julie really helped me when starting up my pottery business from producing invoices, arranging marketing training, looking at finances and tax as well as record-keeping systems!

Her advice, training and support have been invaluable and have given me the confidence to succeed!

The team at Dorset Growth Hub have offered sound, clear advice. They understood where we were coming from straight away – they got it – and helped us ask all the right questions at the right stage. Working with them has been really straightforward. Their input has made such a positive difference to us as a local business trying to grow our output.

Aldershot Enterprise Centre

The Aldershot Enterprise Centre was in the right location (Hampshire), and it is a relatively good commute from home. You are less expensive than your competitors, which was very important to me as a start-up. There are no hidden costs in the contract, and during my initial visit, I was told “this is it, warts and all” – I want that transparency in my supplier relationships. I also feel there is a sense of calm as I walk around the building, which I find nice.

I had no idea what was involved in setting up/running a business, how to write a business plan or cash flows/forecasts.

Having Susan as a guide was invaluable during those early days.

I was on such a tight budget but the advice from Dorset Growth Hub and the mentoring from Dormen really helped move me forward and get me on my feet. It’s so useful to have your business plan looked at and queried by eagle-eyed experts like Nick. The advice has been invaluable, bringing me down to earth and enabling me to put practical steps in place. It has helped me turn my dreams into reality and I feel very privileged. I look forward to expanding our offerings and meeting new customers. This is an amazing journey. My hope is that in the next two to three years I could be looking at a franchise model as part of our expansion.
