About this event

Am I eligible?

This course is available for the following individuals: VETERANS // FAMILIES // SPOUSES // RESERVISTS // CADETS

What can I expect on this 1-day course?

Whether you’ve already started working on your business idea, or are just beginning to consider self-employment, come along to our X-Forces Enterprise business workshop and meet like-minded people.

This workshop covers:

The pros and cons of self-employment

Understanding what starting a business means for you, your family and your finances

Attributes of a successful entrepreneur

Discover what support is available, and how to access it

Peer-to-peer support & networking opportunities

By the end of this one-day workshop you should be able to make an informed decision as to whether starting a business is right for you.

We will help you understand how to progress from having a business idea to starting a business and how X-Forces Enterprise can support you through this journey.

What our attendees say: “Fantastic! It reinforced my ideas and even led to new ones, plus gave me an understanding of what I need to do next!” Christopher attended a Self-Employment Discovery workshop in London.


What do I need for this workshop?

A personal laptop or tablet with webcam and microphone enabled, and a stable broadband connection with at least 2Mbps spare bandwidth and a fixed, quiet environment. Oh, and a pen/notepad next to you in case you want to make any notes!

The workshop will be hosted using Zoom, and you can join via most browsers, or use the Zoom app.

You will be emailed further information nearer the workshop, including how to get online & join the virtual workshop for free.

What do I need to do in advance of the course?

You need to sign up to XFE Hub as a member and complete the questionnaire before the training.

Is there an age limit?

Yes, you must be over 18 to join this event.

Is there any support available after the event?

Our events are just the start of the support we can offer you. If you decide entrepreneurship is for you, we recommend you attend our 2-day Start-up Skills workshop for a more in-depth workshop on business start-up. Alternatively, should you feel ready to proceed, we can assign you a dedicated Business Advisor who will help you apply for start-up funding, following which you will be eligible for our 12 months mentoring programme.

This event is supported by ABF The Soldiers' Charity.

What if I have a query in the meantime?

For any enquiries please call 0121 724 0655 or email

Organiser X-Forces Enterprise

Organiser of Self Employment Discovery Virtual Workshop

Important Notice: due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, we have moved all of our Networking events and Training Workshops online, to be delivered in a virtual space. These will have the same high level of interactivity and engagement as an in-person event, and can all be done from the comfort of your home. These events do have very limited places, so please register your interest as soon as possible.



''X-Forces Enterprise nurtures entrepreneurial ambition in the UK Armed Forces community by supporting start-up and scale-up businesses. We provide free training to the community (Service leavers, military spouses and partners, reservists, cadets and children of forces) through our charity and corporate partners.''


We are the industry leader for enterprise training in the military community with a success rate around 90% of micro-financing repayment*. We have supported in various ways over 1,900 business owners since 2013. Many hundreds more have experienced our training, business advice, networking, mentoring or events.


If an individual makes an informed decision not to start-up a business, we still consider this a success story as the entrepreneurial skills learned are assets in an employed role.


*Micro-financing repayment does not necessarily directly correlate to business success. Business success, very much like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder or the business owner.''
