Starting a business

There are many reasons for starting your own business – you want to be your own boss, you have a great idea, you have a passion for something you want to share and so on. Taking the plunge may sound like just one decision but starting a venture is more a series of decisions and processes.


Start-up Accelerator Programme

If you are thinking about starting a business we have partnered with Leicester Startups to offer an excellent six-week programme just for you. This offers workshops and mentoring and an opportunity to share the journey with others in the same boat. They have commenced their current group, watch out for further updates for next programme.

*If your business is less than 36 months old you may be able to join the Early Stage Business programme.
