Our award-winning programme has helped thousands of people to start successful businesses through our innovative business start-up workshops, one-to-one coaching and networking events. We specialise in providing services for those facing the biggest barriers to enterprise, including long-term unemployed, ethnic minority groups, women, under 25’s and people with physical or mental disabilities.
We are a totally FREE programme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Plymouth City Council, that helps people from the Plymouth area to explore the possibility of starting their own business. We offer a range of options including information sessions, one-to-one advice, pre and post business start-up workshops and help with accessing finance. This is not an academic qualification, but hands on, vocational support and guidance tailored to you.
