The Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s HEY Growth Hub is launching a Start-Up Fast Track programme aimed at helping individuals to discover what is involved in starting and running a business.
As part of its HEY Start-Ups programme, this project will start on October 8, and participants will have the opportunity to explore the key steps involved in starting and growing a new business in 10 three-hour online sessions run over a period of three weeks.
The HEY Start-Ups Fast Track programme, delivered by expert advisers from Page Consulting, is fully funded by the HEY Growth Hub so is free of charge to participants.
The programme will also introduce attendees to other like-minded people to share experiences and build successful networks.
Each workshop focuses on a different key skill for any aspiring entrepreneur with activities and exercises that will fast-track business setup, launch and growth. This will include an exploration of what’s involved in starting a business, researching the market, developing a sales and marketing plan, and planning for business success, among others.
This complements the existing HEY Start-Ups workshop and masterclass programme by providing the opportunity to focus on starting up over a condensed period – ideal for those entrepreneurs keen to get started as soon as possible.
