Charnwood plans free workshop for people aiming to start a new business this year

People interested in starting 2019 by launching their own business are invited to a free Charnwood Borough Council workshop to get top tips on how to go about it.

The event is on Wednesday 9th January, and it is aimed at those who have thought about working for themselves but are unsure of how to get going.

The New Year, New Business session will take place in Loughborough and is part of the Enterprise inCharnwood programme, a series of free workshops, one-to-one advice and networking events for anyone who needs support with starting a business.

Cllr Eric Vardy, the Council’s lead member for planning, inward investment and tourism strategy said “The new year is often seen as a new start and for some people it may be to start a business or work for themselves.

“This workshop is a great opportunity for people who may have always considered being self-employed but are unsure on how to get started. This free session will offer information and advice to help people get started. “

The workshop will be delivered by Co-operative and Social Enterprise Agency (CASE), an organisation which offers all types of business advice and support across Leicestershire.

Dorothy Francis, co-director of CASE said: “The session will be hosted in an informal and friendly environment and will focus on the key basics of starting a business. It will offer people the chance to ask questions and network with others who are also considering starting a business.

“CASE is skilled at supporting people from all types of backgrounds into business and specialises in working with people with no previous business experience to help them to create viable and sustainable enterprises.

“Everyone is welcome to attend the workshop and those who wish to learn more can book free one-to-one advice and support sessions to explore their ideas further.”

The New Year, New Business workshop will take place on Wednesday January 9, 2019 at the Council offices in Southfield Road, Loughborough between 9.30am and 12pm.

Those wishing to book a place on the workshop can contact CASE on enquiries@case.coop or call 0116 222 5010
