NBV: Starting in Business Programme (Day 1)

3 July, 2017, 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

NBV is a local Enterprise Agency offering help and advice to both start-up businesses and those who are already established.  What’s more, since some of their programmes are supported through European funds, some of NBV’s support is completely free.  This three day programme is a good example of this: valuable face-to-face support at a local venue, delivered totally free of charge.  All that you need to invest is three days of your time.

Mansfield i-Centre, Mansfield | DATES: 3rd, 4th & 10th July

From bookkeepers and beauticians to cupcake bakers and care agencies, whatever business you dream of starting, we can help.   In other words, we’ll help you transform your idea into a business and support you with a fantastic package of training and funding.  You’ll also get to meet other like-minded people and tap into our expertise.  After all, as an organisation we have over 30 years’ experience in helping people start businesses.  Moreover, NBV will be on hand to provide you with advice every step of the way.

Week 1 – 2 Day Workshop

 Day 1: 3rd July, 9.30am–4.00pm; Day 2: 4th July, 9.30am–4.00pm

This intensive 2 day workshop will be led by an experienced business trainer.  In turn, they will teach you the nuts and bolts of starting and running a successful business.  Topics include: what skills are needed to run a business, the importance of Business Planning, how to market your business, understanding opportunities and risks and how to manage money in a business.

Week 2 – 1 Day Business Plan – 10th July

“He who fails to plan is planning to fail!” – Sir Winston Churchill

 It’s time to focus in on the Business Plan, the all-important ‘road map’ for your business.  Of course, if you are looking to raise money through loans, investment or grants then you’ll need a business plan.  If not, it’s simple: businesses with a clear, well-thought-out Business Plan survive and grow better than those without.

In this interactive full-day session, you’ll learn the component parts of the Business Plan and how to ask yourself the right questions.  Furthermore, we’ll cover the importance of comprehensive market research, how to calculate your start-up costs and how to develop realistic financial projections.

We will also talk about the additional support that NBV can provide once you are up and running.  These services include business advice, business workshops, networking, office facilities and much more.

Further information and registration

Upon completion of the 3 days, you’ll get a certificate and, more importantly, you’ll have everything you need to get your business up and running.  So don’t delay, register today.
