An initiative to develop start-up and new businesses across Rotherham with free, tailored help and support launched last week. 

'Mighty' will deliver everything from practical help and advice, such as finding premises or preparing contracts, to testing and developing business ideas, through to one to one mentoring and coaching. 

Part of the Sheffield City Region Launchpad scheme which delivers business support across the region, Mighty has been tailored by Rotherham Council’s RIDO team and developed in line with Council plans to back local business growth. 

Amanda Parris, RIDO’s Business Growth Manager, said: “Mighty will work with entrepreneurs and new business to really test and hone ideas, make the most of all their opportunities and be prepared to confront any risks. 

We’re also working with businesses under 24 months old who are looking to grow, perhaps taking on staff or moving premises, or diversify their offering. There’s a team of experts waiting to mentor and support businesses like this in the region, and it’s all free.”
