The British Chamber of Commerce has a number of initiatives. Please see below for more information on these.
The British Chamber's IT committee in collaboration with the Vocational Training Council (VTC) runs the GETsIT programme.

Emerging Leaders mentoring scheme
The scheme will run for a period of 12 months from the date of the first meeting. Guidance will be provided on the structure of the scheme but the emphasis will be on the individual participant to set objectives and targets with their respective mentor to achieve personal and professional development.

Business Angel Programme
The British Chamber's Business Angel Programme brings together entrepreneurs and investors to create exciting new partnerships. This website and its associated events give entrepreneurs with new business ventures, or SMEs looking for funding to expand, the opportunity to present their business plan to investors.
The Chamber runs a series of events every year which allows shortlisted candidates to present their business plans in front of a panel of investors and enjoy the opportunity to network and make valuable contacts. Please visit our Business Angel website for more details.
At the British Chamber of Commerce, we understand the huge hurdles that small businesses face whether it is accessing capital to help the company grow, finding affordable and suitable property to house the business, marketing the business in the correct way, hiring & firing or setting up the correct IT systems.
The SME Marketplace is the go-to resource centre for SMEs in need of professional support. It is a platform of unique and affordable services and offers for SMEs and Start-up members of the Chamber. Working through this online portal, as well as through a series of special events, the SME Marketplace brings together the expertise of member companies to provide affordable and professional services to the SME community.
