Excellent Business Start-up Opportunity for Ex-Service Members offered by X-Forces

5 September 2013

X-Forces was recently set up to help members of the Service Community to start up their own businesses.  I am writing to you today to seek your advice on how we might together help more members of the Grenadier Guards find enjoyable and rewarding opportunities by setting themselves up in business. 

X-Forces is already working very effectively with the Princess of Wales’ Royal Regiment, through their Tiger Rec scheme , to help soldiers, veterans and their spouses into business ownership and we would very much like to do the same with you. 

X-Forces offers a full package of support to business start-ups from an initial assessment which allows us and the applicant to understand how well he/she will handle running their own business, through mentored design of their business plan, to business plan submission, including application for funding, to business development, client acquisition and future growth advice.

Uniquely, we do not require any previous commercial experience, we offer a personal assessment and we will do everything possible to find each new business its first client or customer.   We also remain engaged until the business is fully up and running and both parties agree that no further support is needed.

I am attaching an overview of our company and this link to our website: as well as a copy of our Press Release following our launch at Lancaster House last month with Lord Young.    You will see that Corporal Tom Cornwell was one of our first pioneers to enter our Programme.  He will benefit not only from our support for his business, but also the publicity which he will gain for that business from getting fully involved in our early development and launch.  

Our offer is open to reservists, veterans of any standing, spouses of regulars and reservists and dependents aged over 18
