Case Study – Mark Andrews


Technology Start-up Programme in Coventry & Warwickshire


Mark Andrews.

Mark was inspired to progress his business idea as an outlet to further develop his creativity after working for a company which didn’t support his creative ambitions.

His business idea is to produce unique pieces of artwork themed around his passion of music in particular rock and varies from bespoke art work, to pin badges through to greeting cards. Mark’s main objective isn’t to become a millionaire but to be recognised for his brand and to produce very high quality work which people will truly value and appreciate.

He approached CUE Business Solutions for help meet his needs—this included workshops on Social Media and Pitching along with mentoring from experienced Business Advisor Paul Bennett. Paul helped Mark to re consider who his customers were and then progress his idea using a one page business plan.

Talking about the support Mark received from CUE he said, “Finding the support I needed was incredibly easy, because I was actively guided towards what further options were available to me.” “I would absolutely recommend”. “Personally, I knew I had limitations as a business owner, and knew I needed help”. ”However, it was highlighting the things I didn’t know that I didn’t know that was the real gain.”
