This com­pares with 100 firms on the scheme back in March. Cool Ven­tures has ap­pointed a client co-or­di­na­tor, Laura Lewis, to help sup­port the grow­ing num­bers of busi­nesses on the pro­gramme which ben­e­fit from expert coach­ing and ac­cess to work­shops on busi­ness plan­ning, fi­nance, mar­ket­ing and man­age­ment. She will also use her mar­ket­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to help pro­mote the ben­e­fits of pro­gramme, which was launched last sum­mer. Cool Ven­tures di­rec­tor Sue Marchant said the suc­cess of the pro­gramme meant there was a need for more sup­port and wel­comed Laura to the team.
