Boost Innovations

Supported by the Access to Finance programme, Boost Innovations in Calstock, Cornwall has designed a new type of breast prosthesis to improve the lives of women following breast cancer treatment and challenge the way breast forms are viewed.

Since 2018, Boost has been supported by Access to Finance, which provides impartial support on all aspects of finance for businesses in Cornwall. More recently, the Access to Finance team were able to help Boost put together a cash flow forecast for a pitch deck for an application to the British Design Fund (BDF). An application, which resulted in Boost successfully securing a £105,000 investment from BDF to hire two part-time employees, commission equipment and undertake further product development.
