Are you currently not working and thinking about self-employment as a way forward? Or maybe you have a great idea for a business or social enterprise but aren’t sure how to get started. Or perhaps your organisation works with unemployed people. Then please join us at the Discovering Enterprise Roadshow.
This FREE event will give you the chance to hear entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs talk about how they got started and how they have made a success of their venture. They’ll also be giving you their top tips on how to overcome the challenges to make your venture a success.
We’ll also have some taster workshops on a range of topics that you can attend throughout the day:
- Is it for me? A chance to find out about the realities of becoming self-employed
- Starting a social enterprise. Find out about how you can become self-employed and achieve a social objective that concerns you
- Financing a new business. Find out about your options for raising the money you need to get your business idea off the ground
- Growing your business through social media. Find out how social media can be a cost effective way to spread the word about your business and generate sales
PLUS we’ll have experts available throughout the day so if you have any burning questions you can quiz the experts for advice.
AND you’ll be able to find out more about the free help available to get you started in your own journey to self-employment.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day including a light lunch.
This event is being offered by the Inspiring Enterprise Project, a Building Better Opportunities project which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund. The project offers individual advice, training and mentoring to unemployed people in the North Hampshire, South Surrey and New Forest area.
