Founded in 2012, Cabinet Office-approved Cogent Ventures provides consultancy support to social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations involved in the provision or commissioning of health and social care.  It helps clients to create and deliver competitive advantage in an increasingly commercial and often financially constrained environment.

Core service areas include strategy, business planning, business development, bid management, commissioning support, corporate finance, policy development, new ventures, financial modelling, capital projects, governance, partnership development, executive coaching, and team development.

Profits from paid for services are reinvested in providing pro bono and subsidised consultancy services to smaller organisations.

Cogent Ventures is an approved provider for the Investment and Contract Readiness Fund; and a member of Social Enterprise West Midlands.
