Starting Your Own Business

If you are looking at starting a business, we can support you through an exciting yet challenging time. There is an abundance of things to think about and get right. By sitting down with an experienced Advisor, you can test your idea, understand the key elements and ensure you are putting best practice into place.

Help includes preparing business plans, applying for grants/loans, marketing, sales and legislative requirements. It's a broad base of practical, no nonsense advice that builds the foundations of a strong business.

Depending on where you live or what sort of business you are thinking of starting, you may be able to get help from us for free or at a subsidised rate. Help could be on a one-to-one basis with a business advisor or in a small group session on one of our free workshops. 

Business skills workshops are run across Devon so please speak with us or take a look at our workshops page for the latest details.
