Business Start Up: A series of 2 or 3 day modular workshops covering all the essential topics for business success will be held at a number of local venues in Plymouth.
What’s on Offer?
Professional Advisor support: You’ll be able to access some 1:1 advisor support by phone, skype, email or in person, ideal for when you get a bit stuck and just need to discuss something specific for your business. With Outset, there’s always someone to help you on your enterprise journey – there’s no such thing as a stupid question!
Outset Online: Our excellent online platform is full of great content and exercises to work through in your own time, so if you need to take a bit longer to prepare your business plan, or prefer to learn at home or after hours, or just work through an exercise again to ensure your understanding, this platform will really be helpful to you.
Our national Outset community: We also facilitate a virtual community so that you can stay in touch with those you have met in workshops or at our events, as well as other Outset entrepreneurs across the UK. This is a fantastic way to build your network of like-minded people, share ideas and ask questions, and also find potential collaborators or suppliers. The Outset community believe in helping each other, as they’ve all been on the same journey.
Outset Finance: Financing the start of a business can be a challenge, but our sister service, Outset Finance, is a national delivery partner for the government’s Start Up Loan programme. It has enabled over £15m of finance for clients so far, helping to give new businesses the working capital they need to make a great start. The Outset Finance team will guide you through the simple application process and also offer post-loan mentoring.
