Event Description

Starting up a business in tough times: unleashing the potential of local entrepreneurs 

09thOctober, 2012: 13.00-16.30 at the Selby Centre

It is a gloomy and uncertain time in the UK economy. Banks are slow to invest, inflation and unemployment rates are high, and a lot of big retail names have gone under in recent months. It might seem like the worst time to start up a new business of your own!

BUT in any community there are always people who want to do things, people who have a passion - based on an idea, a skill, a hobby or an interest - that they could turn into a business. All they need is a little help, someone to support them, to break down the barriers to success. This workshop will help you start to do just that.

What can you expect from the day?
An opportunity to hear about starting in business, the different ways people approach it and the simple things you can do to help yourself. 

  • Your starting point
-       A checklist to consider
-       Your business plan demystified
-       Developing your idea

  • Who is out there to help?
-       Help is closer than you think
  • Taking your first steps
-       Ways to experience what it might be like
-       What can you learn before you start
-       How will you deal with competition

Who is this event for?
This event is for everyone who is looking to learn more about how they can start up a small business, or grow their current business, in tough economic times. You might be interested in starting up a business yourself, or looking to learn some useful tips and techniques to help others. All are welcome.

If you are interested in how to start a new business where you live in Haringey SIGN UP HERE  – and if you have any questions about the event please email joe.penny@neweconomics.org
