Enterprising Worcestershire – New Year, New Start

The start of a new year is a time during which most of us take the opportunity to reflect upon the year gone by and look forward to what we would like to achieve in the coming year. This period of reflection can also be extremely beneficial to young businesses, as you consider your objectives for 2018 and onwards, and what your strategy to achieve those goals will be.

How will you drive your business forward in 2018? What support could you benefit from to take those next steps?

Enterprising Worcestershire, which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and managed by the Worcestershire County Council, recognises the need for ongoing support during those tricky early years, and has developed a range of workshops designed to provide young enterprises with the knowledge and understanding to help their business thrive.

Post Start Support

Available to eligible enterprises up to three years old, this support offers a range of workshops covering strategic marketing, legal essentials, planning for growth, and performance improvement to name but a few. These are delivered by our team of experienced and dedicated advisors.

High Growth Support

Our dedicated High Growth Business Support Team can support eligible enterprises from pre-start up to 12 months old, which have rapid growth potential. Eligible enterprises will receive a minimum of 24hrs support, predominantly on a 1-2-1 basis, to help you identify and overcome any key early stage barriers and to develop a solid foundation for your high growth enterprise.

Grant Opportunity

Underpinning all of the Enterprising Worcestershire support is the grant programme for eligible enterprises up to three years old, which is able to deliver £1,000 – £1,500 of match funding grant, at 50%, towards eligible items. The grant programme is really getting some momentum with a number of grants having already been awarded to early stage enterprises in the county.

Julie Fountain at Beach Art Glass, Malvern said:

“I’ve now received the Enterprising Worcestershire grant and can’t thank the team at Enterprising Worcestershire enough for their help with my business.  The grant application process was straightforward and the team were available to support me every step of the way.  Payment was fast too!”
