Description

Looking to start up in business? Already started but need some extra help?

Then this programme is for you!

North East Derbyshire District Council is working in partnership with NBV to host:

The NBV Starting In Business Programme.

This is a free three day course, and participants should aim to attend all three workshops. (6th, 7th and 11th June 2018)

From bookkeepers and beauticians to cupcake bakers and care agencies, whatever business you dream of starting we can help! Transform your idea into a business with the help and support of our great package of training and funding. On this programme, you’ll get to meet other like-minded people and benefit from the expertise of a company with over 30 years’ experience in helping people start businesses. NBV will be on hand to provide you with advice every step of the way.

WEEK 1 – 2 DAY WORKSHOP (6th and 7th June 2018)

This intensive 2-day workshop led by an experienced business trainer will teach you the nuts and bolts of starting and running a successful business. Included in the workshop: the skills needed to run a business, the importance of Business Planning, how to market your business, understanding opportunities and risks and how to manage money in a business.

WEEK 2 – 1 DAY BUSINESS PLAN (11th June2018)

“He who fails to plan is planning to fail!” – Sir Winston Churchill

It’s time to focus in on the Business Plan, the all-important ‘road map’ for your business. If you are looking to raise money through loans, investment or grants then you’ll need a business plan. If not, it’s simple: businesses with a clear, well thought out Business Plan survive and grow better than those without.

In this interactive full-day session you’ll learn the component parts of the Business Plan. You will learn how to ask yourself the right questions, the importance of comprehensive market research, how to calculate your start-up costs and how to develop realistic financial projections.

We will also talk about the additional support that NBV can provide once you are up and running including business advice, business workshops, networking, office facilities and much more.

Eliability criteria applies; the buisiness should be based in the D2N2 area (i.e Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire).

All three days will be held at the Distriict Council Offices at North East Derbyshire District Council, and the Council may share registration details with NBA for the purposes of adminsistering this event.

free parking is available at this event on a first come first served basis.
