Start Smart – Business Start Up Workshop
Are you considering starting your own business?
Maybe it’s all new to you or perhaps you’ve recently started a business and want answers to some of the questions you may be asking yourself;
- Is self-employment/running a business the right thing for me?
- Is my idea viable, will my business work and what type of research should I be carrying out?
- Who will my customers be? How do I find them and will how will I know they want the product or service I am offering?
- Can I start my business without any initial financial investment? What are my options if I need to raise finance? Are there any grants and loans can I access?
- How do I stay the right side of the law? What are my responsibilities around tax and what is the best legal structure for my business?
- How can I keep track of my finances? What’s the best way to turn my efforts into profit?
- Now that my business has started, what is the best way to grow it? How do I take on staff and find suitable premises?
Taking place over two days, our Start Smart workshop is aimed at entrepreneurs in Greater Manchester who are looking to start or take the next step in their business. Day 1 of this fully funded program will give you the opportunity to learn about you and your business idea. On Day 2 we look at the finances of a business and how to turn your dream into reality.
