About us

Outset Torbay is a fully-funded programme which started in September 2010 with the aim of supporting under-represented enterprise groups to start their own businesses. We pride ourselves on offering flexible, high quality and practical support in a really supportive environment, and delivered in the community. 

Our Outset programmes have helped thousands of people unlock their potential and work for themselves. Our doors are open to everyone, particularly women, BME, unemployed, disabled, young people and the over 50s, and those living in deprived wards. 

Outset is run and managed by YTKO Group – one of the UK’s leading experts in business start-up and enterprise development.

We offer

Outset is a really flexible, tailor made support programme designed to suit your needs – we never take a generic, one-size-fits-all approach! The Outset programme has a range of support on offer, so before you book onto any of the FREE workshops, we suggest you attend an information session or call us to speak with one of our advisors. They’ll help you decide which route is going to be most effective for you. 

Workshops on offer: 
> Information Sessions 
> One-to-one Coaching
> Introduction to Enterprise
> Business Start Up
> Accelerate to Sustainability.

What our Outset Torbay clients say...

“Going through the Outset course helped me make the decision to focus on the business needs and move forward. Since attending, I now have bookings coming in for private events, which for me is the way forward. In addition, I have been taking Clayzer to large holiday parks, which is something I hope to develop further.” Chris Lancaster, Clayzer

“All the topics covered have given me encouragement and grown my confidence in myself and my business idea. Outset Torbay has helped make me aware of the steps I should be taking NOW before I get started.” Andy Youngs

“Very relevant to where I’m at, helping me identify what I still need to do, how to go about it, what resources to access. I really need to be more pro-active and the Outset Torbay programme is really highlighting what I need to do, where my weaknesses are and how I can strengthen.” Sima Cutting
