This fully-funded business support is aimed at helping those in the Sefton area who are looking to start a business, or those who are looking to grow a new business which is under three years old.
Enterprise Hub is Liverpool City Region’s “one front door” access point for business support, offering clients a programme of 1-2-1 business support and advice, as well as access to training courses, to help develop their ideas and learn core business skills.
Enterprise expert Jacqueline Daley will be offering a number of 1-2-1 appointments every Thursday between 1-3pm at Formby Pool. Appointments should be pre-booked by those wishing to register onto the Enterprise Hub programme.
This support will help clients understand the process of starting or growing a business and to research and develop a business plan or growth strategy. Budding entrepreneurs will also be able to learn key skills to develop a sales and marketing strategy, as well as understanding the everyday practicalities of running a business and looking at ways of accessing finance.
The new outreach appointments will mean those with a business idea can receive support on their doorstep, without having to travel to Enterprise Hub’s Liverpool City Centre base.
Jackie Williams, Enterprise Hub Project Manager and Enterprise Director at Liverpool social enterprise The Women’s Organisation, says: “We’re delighted to be bringing Enterprise Hub straight to the Sefton community at Formby Pool to give local people that all-important helping hand and confidence boost to pursue or develop a business dream.
“We would highly encourage anyone who is either sat on an idea they’d like to explore or has a new business that is ready to grow, to get in touch and see how we can help. The community here is always brimming with entrepreneurial spirit and ideas, so we’re excited to see what is in store!”
Heather Davies, Community Development Officer, at Formby Pool, says: “At Formby Pool we are a hub at the heart of our community – a place to meet and come together – and so we are very excited to be able to offer yet more opportunities for local residents.
“These drop-in sessions with Enterprise Hub will offer budding entrepreneurs the chance to receive the support and guidance they need right on their doorstep. I hope that local residents will take advantage of this opportunity and that the support on offer will help to boost our thriving community here in Sefton”.
The support and training is available fully-funded under the Enterprise Hub programme, which is receiving funding from the European Regional Development Fund.
