Do you need a helping hand to get your business off the ground or put plans in place to help it grow? No matter what your goals, Business Gateway’s fully funded workshop programme can help.

If you are just starting out, the start-up seminars will arm you with the knowledge you need to successfully launch your business – from business planning to marketing, bookkeeping to finance.

For owners of established companies, the workshops will build your knowledge in key areas such as social media, marketing, sales, and funding.

Running from September until the end of 2016, the programme complements the expert one-to-one support that Business Gateway’s advisers provide.
