Are you planning on starting a new business?

Starting a new business is a huge and challenging step but there is a great deal of support available for new entrepreneurs, both in the early stages of setting up a business and for helping with growth.

The Start and Grow programme, which is supported by the Regional Growth Fund, is just one programme of many that are available to pre-start businesses, and research has shown that those businesses who receive early support and advice are more likely to be successful in sustaining their business in the longer term.

Start and Grow offers a 3 year programme of support and advice, from helping the business owner to start trading, through to advice on marketing, funding or taking on staff. Once on the Start and Grow programme and trading, Enterprise First clients will also receive membership to Enterprise Nation, which is a great start up resource, and to JournoLink which could significantly support promotional efforts.

To be eligible for Start and Grow, the business owner must be looking to grow and invest in their business along with potentially creating further employment for others.  We have had many successful applicants from the Worthing and Brighton areas, and this programme is free and open to all potential business owners who meet the criteria.

Enterprise First is currently delivering the new Start & Grow programme throughout the South and as a local representative I can help you with your application.

 Andy Pringle, Business Development Manager of Enterprise First says: “People have different reasons for wanting to work for themselves, it may be a lifestyle choice or an increasingly uncertain job market or redundancy which means exploring other options. “

“To succeed in the small business arena, persistence and determination are key.  The ability to plan is an advantage and also a willingness to be adaptable to change as the business develops.  Don’t let fear hold you back, many people give up to easily. Starting a business is hard work but incredibly rewarding.”

These small businesses are of significant importance to the UK economy – as they provide vital employment opportunities.   It is fundamental that these small business owners know from the outset how they can receive the support that they need to thrive.

So, if you are interested in starting out and in finding out more about Start and Grow, please get in touch with me, or for more information see http://www.enterprisefirst.co.uk/services/start-grow/

 

New business win for Tipton Marketing

Let’s put Worthing on the small business map

Contrary to popular belief the largest population demographic in Worthing is the 16-44 year old range; an age range which supports an ever growing number of entrepreneurs, keen to start and grow local businesses.  However, given those statistics Worthing is still lagging behind compared with the South East in general*.

So, with an ever-changing economy and potential talent on our doorstep what do we need to do to encourage potential entrepreneurs to thrive in our town?

Both new and growing businesses generally need 4 main ingredients to survive, which are: Hands on management assistance, access to finance, business and technical support services and a collaborative working environment, with access to peer-to-peer support.

Tipton Marketing is proud to be working with Jon Trigg Founder & MD of a new workspace initiative, Freedom Works.  Trigg believes that by providing new and growing businesses with the right environment to encourage and facilitate growth, Worthing should be able to rival its shoulder towns in encouraging and developing these new businesses.

“We recognised that Worthing needed more co-working environments, as these do play a large part in helping businesses thrive, and we are pleased to be playing our part in that,” commented Trigg, who is currently refurbishing 5,000 sq ft of old offices in Worthing Town Centre to create a fresh, open and collaborative office environment.

“These individuals and businesses may grow stronger and larger with the right connections which is why I founded Freedom Works. Our flexible offering will allow those looking to expand their companies the space and environment to grow.  We will focus on providing back bedroom businesses and home workers a simple ‘plug and play’ environment to help get their ideas off the ground or build upon them.”

Those looking for larger premises may also be interested in one of the many purpose built, modern office spaces available alongside free beer Fridays and regular networking events for all.

 

“We all want the talent that is from Worthing to stay in Worthing and for everyone to be proud of our town”.
