Have you been inspired to look into starting your own business?

We have courses, advice and useful resources to help you decide if starting a business is the right thing to do. And if it is; how to start and grow a successful business.

We know that starting and running a business is not only exciting but also very difficult without the right advice and guidance before you do start up.
We also know that being told about the 'business operations' side of running a business can be really boring and frustrating for most entrepreneurs who just want to have a go.
That’s why everything we do is done in a non-stressful, non-threatening and supportive environment.
There are a number of programmes of support we have available to individuals throughout the North East of England including help for the unemployed, those at risk or have been made redundant, 18-24 year olds and more. Read below for more information

We also understand that not everyone is available through 'normal' office opening hours so....
In order to cater for as many individuals as possible we have created a Facebook entry, Twitter entry and a dedicated email address, so there is no reason why you can’t get the advice and support you need.
We look forward to working with you.
Some of our support is with the thanks of the following funders
