Description

Make it happen: from a brainwave to a business

If you have a fantastic idea but aren’t sure how to go about turning it into a profitable business, this workshop is for you. It’s designed for anyone in the planning stages of their new business and will help you develop the essential skills and knowledge to set it up.

The workshop will include:

  • Pricing: how to price correctly, understand profit and loss and maintain your cash flow
  • Marketing: how to identify your target market and why they’ll want to buy from you
  • Networking: tips on how to do it and why it’s vital
  • Accountancy: a session with an accountant covering vital information on business structure and tax
  • A peer support session where you can share ideas and solve problems with other fledgeling businesses
  • Where to go for business support
  • A one-hour mentoring session with a business expert of your choice, after the workshop
  • An opportunity to take part in the Viva initiative and learn how to build a one-page website
