No dragons here! Just business support – 23rd September at the Greenway Centre

If you are running a business or you plan to, we can’t wait to meet you.  We won’t bite and just want to welcome you to our new business support programme which we’re launching on Thursday 23rd September.  Please register (details at the bottom) so we can add you to the list, prepare the catering, and get ready to help you with your enterprise needs.

We are North and East Bristol Enterprise Support (NEBES) and in partnership with the Southmead Development Trust are launching a free support scheme for people looking to start a business, as well as those who want advice to grow an existing enterprise in North Bristol.

At our launch event, everyone is invited to meet inspiring business owners and speak to business experts about progressing enterprise ideas.  Whether you want to write your business plan, redirect your strategy, master marketing, explore social media and finance, access funding, or more . . . North and East Bristol Enterprise Support can help you gain the knowledge and confidence you need to succeed.

The North and East Bristol Enterprise Support programme is fully funded by Bristol City Council and West of England Combined Authority and offers totally free support for those looking to start a business or work as a freelancer, as well as existing businesses with up to 249 employees.  Once enrolled in the programme, you will gain immediate access to our award winning e-learning resources, live online workshops, and the chance to book 1:1 sessions with expert Business Advisors – all for free!
