- Starting your own technology-based business? Or,
- Registered your business less than 12 months ago with either HMRC Companies House, depending on whether you are a Sole Trader, Limited Company etc?
Looking for help?
Starting your own business is undoubtedly risky so what can we do to help you reduce that uncertainty? You’re thinking my schedule is jam-packed and if I try and squeeze in working with these people won’t it just slow me down? No, and here is why.
Together with our Business Adviser, you’ll explore where you are with your business idea or new business and agree what support you need to move you forward. It could be through our workshops that will develop your business skills, our intensive 12-hour business Launchpad or one-to-one support – or, most likely, a mixture of these.
So what can we offer you?
Our support is designed to help you start your own business or grow your new business – regardless of whether you are a sole trader, partnership, limited company or just starting out with a business idea. Contact us now to learn more and secure a place on the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Support Programme for innovative, technology-based businesses.
- LaunchPad: 12 intensive hours that will test your business idea to the limits.
Emphasis is placed on planning and customer research.
- Business and Development Skills, planning, systems, pitching etc.
- One to one meetings with our business adviser
But we’re flexible – you can, of course, design your own support programme, with the help of our Business Adviser. You’ll receive approximately 12 hours of support that will help you fire up and move on with your plans.
We don’t stop there. If your business has reached a maturity we will discuss further support you can access – whether it is further skills development, brand development, support for developing a prototype or accessing a grant.
Our Business Adviser contacts all potential clients to ensure you are in a position to benefit from our support. You must be a pre-start business that has a technology-based business idea and live in Coventry or Warwickshire.
Otherwise, you need to be a business (Sole Trader, Partnership or Limited Company etc.) newly registered in the past 12 months and based in Coventry or Warwickshire.
