What we do

We provide fully funded support and masters-level Continuing Professional Development.

Utilising the resources  of  Falmouth University,  Launchpad Outreach  can  offer  SMEs in Cornwall  12 hours of  funded  consultancy,  in line with exploring a new market opportunity and developing a new product or service. This is fully funded support - at no cost to you.

We are currently  supporting  businesses  by providing market research reports  to assist in the research  of  market opportunities. This research could take a number  of  forms, so  we  work with  you  to create a brief to best suit you and your business's needs.  We  can also explore consumer trends, collate some competitor analysis and could also help form a survey to be distributed via the appropriate channels.

For businesses looking to develop physical products, Launchpad Outreach can also provide access to Falmouth University's in-house product design consultant, offering support such as concept development, computer assisted design modelling and prototyping. We can also access a budget to fund industry experts where appropriate.

We also work with the University's other teams and resources to offer businesses comprehensive support and access to our Student Placement Scheme.
