Business start-up event

Wychavon District Council is inviting those with business brains and bright new ideas to come along to its business start-up event, which is now just over one week away.

Taking place on 28 June at St Andrew’s Town Hotel in Droitwich Spa, the aim of the event is to stimulate and encourage individuals with a business idea and direct them to the new programmes available that will help them start-up and develop their new business and turn their idea into a reality.

A business advisor will be there to provide one-to-one general advice, and programme staff will also be there to explain the support and grant funding available to them.

The event will be a ‘drop-in session’, which means people can come along from 4.30pm until 7.30pm to speak to business advisors about their ideas and how to get them up and running.

Jane Dobson, Economic Development Officer at Wychavon District Council, said: “We hope this event shows to people that starting your own business doesn’t have to be a dream. If you want to work for yourself then there is support available, and we’re offering free support at this event.”

Councillor Richard Morris, Portfolio holder for Economy and Housing at Wychavon District Council, said: “What is your business? I believe there is a business idea in all of us. You may be in employment, looking to change career or presently unemployed, but I would urge anyone who has ever though of starting their own business to come along and share their thoughts as we may be able to help. Hopefully we can show you that starting out on your own is achievable and there is support available.”

As well as support and advice from Wychavon District Council, the other organisations that will be there to offer guidance include Worcestershire Business Central, Blue Orchid business advisors, and Worcestershire County Council advising on the recently launched Business Start-up and High Growth Programme

There is no need to book an appointment for this event, just turn up from 4.30pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
