Peer Networks is for established business owners who want to build a supportive network with their peers.

the programme

Peer Networks is a free peer-to-peer programme for SMEs to foster a sense of accountability, support and building boundaries.

It will bring together small, diverse groups of business owners on a 3-month journey. Together, you’ll solve business challenges, uncover competitive advantages, and build a network for support and collaboration.

You'll have the space to reflect, strategise and adapt with a supportive group of like-minded business leaders at a similar stage in their business journey.

The proven Peer Networks model will give you tools, experts and space to:

  • Build a trusted network of connections to support you now and in the future
  • Overcome business challenges and act on new opportunities
  • Improve your time management through setting and keeping boundaries
  • Build strategic thinking and problem solving
  • Reflect with a supportive group of like-minded business leaders at a similar stage in their business journey
  • Solve challenges, uncover competitive advantages, and build a network for collaboration
who is this for

Peer Networks is designed for business leaders who want to build resilience and grow their organisation for future success with over £100k yearly turnover.

You must have:

  • At least five employees (or associates / freelancers)
  • A registered business address in Greater London
  • Be open to sharing challenges and opportunities with others.

If you’re not sure if you are eligible for this programme, you can contact us via hello@economyofhours.com to discuss. If you don’t quite meet the criteria, but are ambitious to grow and improve, there may be some flexibility.

“It was hugely beneficial to take part in the programme. It enabled me to create a space for strategic thinking, and I have kept in touch with other businesses following a similar journey.” – Urmi, founder of Pickled Pepper Books
what you'll get from the programme

The groups will be carefully selected to ensure a diverse mix of skills and experience, and to maximise opportunities for collaboration, knowledge sharing and mutual support.

The programme includes:

  • Fortnightly high-impact peer group sessions to uncover solutions to live business challenges, hosted by an experienced facilitator.
  • Flexibility to cover the topics that matter to you – from people management and business strategy, to sales and marketing.
  • 3.5 hours of dedicated 1:1 support where you need it most.
