Start-ups are big business
The growth of “Start-ups” has become an industry in itself. Recognised by the government as a boost for the surrounding business ecosystem and generating a sizable income for the UK.
Government and bigger businesses have recently recognised the benefit of supporting the sector. Bringing a group of young businesses together can help produce a greater motivation and support when challenges arise. Surrounded by peers and given the right support, businesses can be profitable quicker.
This event gives you the opportunity to find out the support that can be provided and if one of these programmes might be right for you and your business.
They offer mentoring and office space and much more. Discover what else you can expect, what they are looking for and the mindset you need to make the most of opportunities. The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
