About Pioneering innovations

In April 2000, Richard started his first hi-tech business venture. Leaving big corporate world to become an entrepreneur meant he needed all the help he could get! Especially in financing new product development and then launching it into the market. Richard needed far more money than he had personally and he had no idea of how to get it!

Business Link offered training courses in business planning or presentation skills but no real practical help in finding the money or how to apply. Richard discovered how the hard way – in the school of hard knocks…

He was not alone – loads of entrepreneurs he met had the same problem. A huge gap in the market!

And so, Pioneering innovations was established in 2003 with a mission to take great ideas to market by delivering the kind of hands-on support and practical help that entrepreneurs really need to turn their ideas into profit!
