Description

To franchise or not to franchise... that is the question.

Have you been thinking about setting up your own business? But are you not sure yet what type of business to start? Or are you considering buying a franchise? Than this is the perfect event for ideas and tips, and to network with like-minded people.

At this business event, Kim van Dongen, MD of eDivert will share her journey and experience as a business owner and entrepreneur.

In her early twenties, Kim set up her first business, a translation agency. Although successful, Kim found working on her own at such a young age a challenge and ended up taking on a dynamic role in the Financial Industry that she absolutely loved. However, the feeling of wanting to run and grow her own business never faded completely. Only 7 years later, in 2009, she started a home care agency, which grew within just 3 years to 50 members of staff and more than half a million in turnover.

Selling the home care business was a logical step, which led to the birth of eDivert. eDivert offers Customer Service and Marketing Services to other businesses.

Recently, eDivert started selling franchise opportunities throughout the UK. eDivert's vision is to ultimately build up a worldwide brand.

Find out at this event, how to avoid the pitfalls of setting up your own business and whether to franchise or not to franchise.
