Midlands Accountants McGregors provide mentoring prize to new, young (as well as not so young) and growing entrepreneurs

McGregors Corporate, the Midlands based firm of entrepreneurial Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers have provided further support to online accounts and book-keeping business, Squeezeonline and their growing entrepreneurial client base by providing a free business mentoring and growth service as a prize to selected users of Squeeze.  Squeeze is a new full online accounts service developed with Sage in the UK and offers a total accounting, book-keeping and annual accounts and tax returns service through a cloud based system.

As part of the launch in February and from the summer 2012 onwards, Squeeze will select one business a month from their registered customers who submit a two page summary of their business and plans for the future to info@squeezeonline.co.uk to benefit from this mentoring prize which is worth thousands of pounds in professionals support.

McGregors Corporate have agreed to provide a business mentoring service for a two year period for the selected winners of this business draw.

McGregors, together with a number of other businesses, have already developed a business growth support service to larger growing businesses and this is called Vivifi, www.vivifigrowthgroup.co.uk and the ethos of this support is included within the free support to Squeeze users.

The free business mentoring includes:

  • Review of business plan and advice and support to build on missing areas and build the business going forward
  • Monthly board meetings by telephone and Skype as continued support
  • Utilisation of Squeeze accounts to control and monitor the business
  • Assistance to build customer, supplier and support networks
  • Assistance with appropriate structures for growth
  • Virtual FD service to build a robust growing business
  • Access to contact base of McGregors
  • Assistance with finance and tax on a one to one basis

Jason Seagrave, a partner in McGregors in Nottingham stated, “We see Squeeze as an important and low costs support service and product to small and growing owner managed businesses and we are committed to helping Squeeze develop their brand and product throughout the UK.  We have helped Squeeze develop their product including online training videos and business articles for their website to help small businesses with online information.

We have, therefore, also provided this support package as a valuable “prize” to the selected customers who wish to take part by submitting their brief business plan to Squeeze.  We see this as a really valuable way to help these businesses grow and we do encourage young entrepreneurs to take part in this as we do see young entrepreneurs as a crucial part of the future success and growth of the UK economy.  All in all, we see that this kind of prize would prove to be far more valuable and worthwhile than the usual memory stick or computer mouse mat”

Squeeze was launched in February 2012 and is being developed and promoted with Sage throughout 2012.  The promotion and potential free mentoring service will be available from 2012 and will be available to the current and new customers that are using the Squeeze online accounting and book-keeping service.  The promotion will run for a year with one business a month being selected to benefit from this valuable support.
