Job Title: SMILE Project Manager, UCL Advances
Company: University College London
Description: What is SMILE?
Facilitated by UCL Advances, the SMILE (Selected Mentors and Interims for London Enterprises) project helps London-based SMEs overcome barriers to growth by making available a network of proven and experienced managers to act as mentors and/or part-time interim managers. Such expertise is invaluable help to SMEs constrained only by their lack of resources.
Who is it for?
SMILE is for London micro, small and medium-sized businesses experiencing “growing pains” due to the lack of specific managerial expertise as needed in development phases. The enterprises would have already passed their start-up phase and are now experiencing managerial challenges that are holding back the potential to grow significantly.
The Benefits of SMILE
For those SMEs who have limited access to skills and resources to develop business opportunities or overcome hurdles, SMILE will transfer outstanding skills, social and professional networks, research and knowledge that will enable them to compete in national and global markets. The mentor/management interim will enable current SME management to take the company further. If needed, the relationship can continue beyond that which is initially arranged by UCL Advances.
The project is led by UCL Advances, the centre for entrepreneurship and business interaction at UCL and it will run until summer 2012. For more information, see www.ucl.ac.uk/smile or contact me directly.
