Outset is a free programme to help you set up and grow your business through a combination of workshops, online resources and advisor support. If you have an idea and are looking to test it out, or have recently started trading and need some business advice, this two-stage programme will guide you through the process.
- Introduction to Enterprise: Covers the fundamentals of setting up your business by helping you understand how to test the market, think of who your customers are, and where to sell. By the end of these sessions you will have completed all the basic learning to help you create a business plan for your new start-up.
- Business Start Up: These sessions cover specific essential topics in more detail, such as social media; website design; start-up finance; and many more. From these in-depth workshops, you will learn more about how to reach your prospective customers and develop a successful business.
- Outset Online: Our excellent online platform is full of great content and exercises to work through in your own time. We also facilitate groups on here so that you can communicate with those you have met in workshops, and other entrepreneurs nationally… A fantastic way to build a network of like-minded people.
