"Oxford Innovation have been an invaluable source of support for our business as rapid growth requires very careful planning and management. One of the crucial lessons I have learnt is that a business can actually be at its most vulnerable when it is experiencing a period of growth.The pace of change can have an adverse impact on individuals within the team while methods of working that once proved perfectly successful may no longer be fit for purpose. Oxford Innovation have used their expertise to guide us through all phases of the process and ensure we are well placed to capitalise on our growth potential."
