Free Workshop for Budding Downham Market Entrepreneurs

A free workshop aimed at budding entrepreneurs and people thinking about setting up their own businesses will run on 19th March 2013 in Downham Market.

Thanks to the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk’s Enterprise Norfolk project, residents will have access to free informative workshops, mentoring and support, covering all the points they need to consider when becoming self-employed or setting up their own business.

The first workshop is called ‘Is it for me?’ and will be run by start-up support specialists TCHC. It will take place on 19 March at the Priory Learning Centre in Downham Market.

During this workshop participants will explore what it means to own a business and what is needed to achieve success.

Graham Coultas, Director of Enterprise for TCHC, explained: “Supporting growth through business development during these tough economic times is crucial and we are looking forward to assisting several new start-ups in Downham Market.”

“With external advice and support aspiring entrepreneurs can ensure that they have the best possible chance of succeeding. The training workshops and individual mentoring sessions will cover all aspects of running a business, from finding customers, marketing and selling through to managing finance, tax & VAT, and presenting a business plan to a bank”, Coultas added.

Booking is essential and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To book your place contact TCHC on 01923 698436 or email [email protected].
