The D2 Business Starter Programme has one purpose; to seek out and assist owners of brilliant ideas across the County, for FREE!

• Drop-In Sessions - Introductory events and a programme of themed workshops held in Derby City Centre, and across the county. Tackling all aspects of working through a new business generation idea.

• Dedicated One-to-One Counselling - In addition to the workshops, individuals can be supported with dedicated one-to-one counselling/ mentoring, delivered by experienced Chamber Business Advisers.

• IT Support – Access to ICT Advisers/ Social Media Specialists. The programme features specialist IT advisers to support individuals to implement, adopt and exploit digital technologies.

• Wider Benefits - You’ll also have access to a wider network of business support and introductions, as a result of the Chamber being the programme’s delivery partner.

Delivered by East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire), in partnership with Derby City Council and Derbyshire County Council, the programme offers an intense and focussed approach to stimulating enterprise creation, reducing the barriers and inequalities faced by deprived communities across Derby City Centre and the county of Derbyshire.
