Drop-in sessions to help fledgling businesses start to fly

Solihull Editorial 17th Jan, 2024   0

ENTREPRENEURS can find help to get their business off the ground at a drop-in session at Touchwood on Friday (January 19).

A marketing specialist and a small business accountant will be on hand at the shopping centre from 9am to 4pm as part of Solihull Council’s Enterprise for Success programme.

The free sessions will give insights into how to manage tax returns and create financial strategies as well as finding out what the latest marketing trends and how to boost a business’s visibility in a competitive market.

The programme is funded by the Government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund and is designed to help guide new entrepreneurs through the crucial first stages of setting up their businesses in a supportive learning environment.

There are also a limited number of spaces available for free one-to-one appointments throughout the day, where new and aspiring entrepreneurs will be able to discuss specific challenges and opportunities for their start-up or small business.

Councillor Ian Courts, Leader of Solihull Council and cabinet member for Business and Economy, said: “This drop-in event is a great opportunity to gain valuable insights from the Enterprise for Success specialists and get a taster of what our excellent start-up support programme has to offer. I encourage anyone who is interested in, or currently in the process of starting a business, to drop in and get free support and advice.”

The Enterprise for Success programme is open to anyone who is looking to set up a business or who has started a business in the past 12 months in Solihull. You must be a resident of Solihull, or your business must be in Solihull, to apply.
