Following a series of successful and popular workshops throughout 2018, South Holland District Council is pleased to announce that there will be more opportunities for anyone looking to start their own business in the district to get the skills and help they need in the new year.
This will start in February with a free intensive three-day Starting in Business course in Spalding. The course, provided by NBV Enterprise Solutions and hosted by South Holland District Council at its Priory Road office, helps to transform ideas into businesses with the help and support of experienced trainers.
On the course attendees will meet like-minded individuals taking their first steps in their own businesses, and benefit from the expertise of a company with over 30 years’ experience in helping people get their ideas off the ground.
As well as practical help, there will also be opportunities to learn about the additional support that can be provided once businesses are up and running, including advice, workshops, networking, office facilities and much more.
The intensive three-day course will run across February, in the following format:
