Story Contracting launch entrepreneur mentor scheme

Story Contracting have launched a brand-new scheme, Story Start Up, which will create new opportunities for entrepreneurship, help organisations to grow, enable new business creation and support economic growth.

Through the initiative, ideas that relate to the construction and infrastructure industry can benefit from a range of financial and professional support services that are designed to help start-ups and businesses across the UK.

Marie Whitehead, communications and engagement director at Story Contracting said: “We are delighted to launch this brand-new scheme which will give new and existing businesses the opportunity to apply for financial support, grants and/or advice from colleagues at Team Story.


“We are really looking forward to receiving applications from across the industry and helping to bring new ideas to the market”.

If an application is successful, whether the idea is just a prototype, or is ready to go to market, Story Contracting will offer financial support in the form of a grant, loan or investment where Story would remain involved in the project. The hope is that this could aid companies and entrepreneurs in starting or growing a company, diversifying, or innovating.

Applicants will also be able to benefit from advice and mentoring through access to professionals within Story Contracting. This could range from marketing guidance to finance and accounting support. Within this, Story will offer advice from senior teams to share a wealth of knowledge and experience on a diverse spectrum of topics.

If you have a great idea that could help the rail or construction industry or could be useful to all businesses such as software and systems then Story want to hear from you!
