Start Me Up!

Date: 10th Nov 2020, 9:00 to 10:00

Organiser: AD:VENTURE

The current climate has certainly presented us all with a lot of challenges, but as with anything related to change, this also brings opportunity.

Many people are seeing new gaps in the market and have seen there is potential to launch their own business. Some have decided to re-assess what they want from life, some have been forced to consider a change through redundancy, whatever the reason may be, many people are now considering the brave leap to launch their own big thing.

This session is for anyone who is thinking of starting their own business, or in the very early stages and who want to understand what key steps to take, and whether the path of the entrepreneur is the right one for them.

Delivered by our AD:VENTURE start-up and scale-up specialist Alice Ingram, the session will cover the fundamentals of starting your own business, and how you can get the support you need to make it happen.

You will also hear from Proper Oats founder, former accountant and body builder Suzanne Ferreira, from York, who launched her business in lockdown, inspired by her love of porridge!
