The journey

Innovative case studies

Join us on our journey with four exciting UK entrepreneurs as we explore the themes of recruitment, expansion, wellbeing, funding, product development and sales and marketing.

We spent time with Growing Underground, JustPark, Pact Coffee and The Fold to find out more about their thoughts on hiring and firing, promoting wellbeing at work, expanding into new markets, partaking in funding rounds, developing new products and motivating their sales and marketing teams.

Our documentary-style series of case studies encapsulates the voyage that many entrepreneurs embark upon; highlighting the similarities and contrasts faced by four very different businesses.

Find out how our High Growth & Entrepreneurs Team can help you on your journey. For more information, get in touch or follow us on Twitter @BarclaysEntpr.
