Introducing Project Nero: Breathing New Life into Traditional Businesses


The start of our journey

Allow us to introduce ourselves – we are Project Nero, the ultimate investment company with a fresh take on revitalising traditional brick-and-mortar businesses. Our mission? Simple. We consult, invest or acquire local businesses, primarily in the East of Scotland and view ourselves the new custodians of businesses that need a little love, expertise, and a sprinkle of tech-savvy magic, allowing them to continue on for the next few decades.

Who Are We?

Project Nero is not your average investment company. We’re a dynamic team of professionals with a wide array of skill sets ranging from accountancy and finance to marketing, administration, technology, and skilled trades. Think of us as your one-stop shop for everything a business needs to thrive. Our senior management team is a blend of number crunchers, tech geeks, marketing mavens, and hands-on trade experts – all working together to breathe new life into traditional industries.

What Do We Do?

We have a soft spot for those classic, cornerstone businesses that keep our communities running smoothly. You know the ones: laundrettes, property maintenance companies, mechanics’ garages, accountancy firms – the list goes on. Our unique advantage? We infuse these traditional businesses with cutting-edge technology and offer unparalleled support and resources.

But we don’t stop there. We also specialise in acquiring distressed businesses, rolling up our sleeves, and turning them around. Whether it’s through consultancy or direct investment, we’re here to help any small business owner take their company to the next level.
