theGFSI was established by the Director identifying the need for a quality signposting service. Industry, organisations, government and technology developments are changing at a speed now that is proving challenging to keep up with these changes.
Having worked as a business consultant within various industries supporting, growth, diversification and Research and Development, the need for access to relevant timely information and sources of support services was identified being harder to access as a result of the many changes in governance and industry.
Securing grant funding is a key factor associated with development and growth. Identifying grant funding available relevant to clients was proven a very time consuming exercise as promotion of finance and equity funding was being included in grant funding lists. Listings of grant funding resources was ever changing and proving hard to trace.
The time taken to find the resources needed, scanning various sites and information proved very tasking.
As a result theGFSI was launched.
