Enterprise for Success start-up support programme for Solihull businesses
Published: 18 January 2024
The Enterprise for Success start-up support programme is hosting a drop-in session at Touchwood on Friday 19 January.
Solihull Council’s Enterprise for Success programme is funded by the Government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund and is designed to help guide new entrepreneurs through the crucial first stages of setting up their businesses in a supportive learning environment.
The free drop-in session will take place from 9am to 4pm at Touchwood Shopping Centre in Solihull town centre. You’ll be able to talk to a small business accountant to get insights on managing your finances, tax returns and financial strategies. A marketing specialist will also be available to answer questions about the latest marketing trends and how to boost your business's visibility in a competitive market.
Additionally, there are a limited number of spaces available for free one-to-one appointments throughout the day, where new and aspiring entrepreneurs will be able to discuss specific challenges and opportunities for their start-up or small business. To book a one-to-one appointment at the Touchwood drop-in session, you can reserve your place here.
Councillor Ian Courts, Leader of Solihull Council and Cabinet Member for Business and Economy, said:
“This drop-in event is a great opportunity to gain valuable insights from the Enterprise for Success specialists and get a taster of what our excellent start-up support programme has to offer. I encourage anyone who is interested in, or currently in the process of starting a business, to drop in and get free support and advice.”
The Enterprise for Success programme is open to anyone who is looking to set up a business or who has started a business in the last twelve months in Solihull. You must be a resident of Solihull, or your business must be in Solihull, to apply.
