Startup West podcast 53: Steve Elias & Gavin Stacey, RSM

Steve Elisa and Gavin Stacey from RSM
Steve Elisa and Gavin Stacey from RSM share practice advice for startups

🎙Recorded down at Riff in the city, Charlie from Startup West talks with two hard-working supporters of the local startup scene Steve Elias and Gavin Stacey, from local tax, accounting and advisory firm RSM.

Steve and Gavin each have more than a decade’s experience working with hundreds of local startups: on their R&D tax claims, grant applications, ESIC, planning, advisory and fund-raising. They share their insights on what it takes to make a successful startup.

When I first started in R&D tax 15 years ago, you wouldn’t believe it, but not a lot of companies knew about the program, despite the fact that it’s been around since 1986. So very much a niche area. I feel like history’s repeating itself with the ESIC. It’s only in existence for 5 years, and the word is only getting out in the street now.
