People to Support Your Start-Up

 

Becoming self employed for the first time and creating a new enterprise carries a number of risks and rewards.

All new businesses need support and advice to ensure that their new venture has the greatest chance of success and that any risk, identified or not is mitigated.

This section contains a full range of local business start up support services to help turn your business dream into reality.

Other areas of the website provide details of support to develop skillstake on staff and a business start-up checklist

The D2N2 Growth Hub Helpline can help you identify the most relevant support to your location and business idea.
