On tap: Help available for Redditch start-ups to grow and prosper

Correspondent 13th Feb, 2018

THOSE thinking of starting a new business or are in the early days of trading can now access a range of individual support through a programme called ‘Enterprise for Success’.

Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the scheme offers budding entrepreneurs in Redditch access to a team of experienced and specialist business advisers, who can guide clients through the journey of starting a company and providing them with the tools to grow and succeed.

Supported by a wide range of partners, including local authorities across the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership and the regional Growth Hub, the Library of Birmingham and Birmingham City University, the programme offers one-to-one personal advice as well as a wealth of expert workshops and events.

Key topics include business planning, financial forecasting and sources of finance, marketing, and intellectual property – as well as practical information including registering your business and choosing the right structure.

Redditch Borough Council Leader Bill Hartnett said: “We are great supporters of ambitious start up and growing businesses. This scheme offers more support to see our entrepreneur’s ideas come to fruition.”

To access the support, or to find our more, contact the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Growth Hub on 0800 032 3488, or at www.gbslepgrowthhub.co.uk.
