The Wellbeing Venture, Business Gateway Support - Dundee
"Business Gateway has been a consistent help throughout in terms of setting the business up, business planning, marketing, developing networks and simply as advice at the end of the phone."
ALAN CLARK, CO-FOUNDER
The Wellbeing Venture provides a range of wellbeing consultancy and advisory services to small and medium companies and schools worldwide.
An important part of their process is seeing each client as a completely unique proposition, with solutions and support informed by people, industry, demographic, location, culture and size.
The Wellbeing Venture can provide anything from a one-off workshop to a fully developed app depending on the client’s requirements.
Co-founders Alan Clark and Craig Dunlop first went into business together with the launch of Take Your Marks – an organisation which aims to tackle the decreasing provision of physical activity in schools. When the pandemic hit, they knew companies would be looking for wellbeing solutions for their staff, and so The Wellbeing Venture concept was born.
Alan cites their journey as challenging at times as they set about refining their offering and considering the impact they wanted to make with the new business, so they reached out to Business Gateway Tayside for support. He commented: “Business Gateway has been a consistent help throughout in terms of setting the business up, business planning, marketing, developing networks and simply as advice at the end of the phone. The biggest tip I can give any entrepreneur is to ask for as much advice and support as you can. People are always willing to help.”
Alan and Craig’s next focus is to grow The Wellbeing Venture team through recruitment of several new members of staff across business development and relationship roles.
