Free Business Startup Event in Leeds
Event on 2015-04-29 16:00:00
In conjunction with Transmit Start-Ups, in2wrk are presenting a series of enterprise events across the North of England to help inform and inspire budding entrepreneurs.
What is Entrepreneurship?
We’ll give you an introduction to Enterprise and what makes a good Entrepreneur. We will explore the traits of successful entrepreneurs and help you decide if you’ve got what it takes.
What’s Your Idea?
If you have a specific idea for a business we will take you through the basics of the business planning journey so that you get a better understanding of whether it’s feasible or not. (But don’t worry if you don’t have a specific idea as we can use hypothetical ideas as examples).
Funding Your Idea
Transmit Start-Ups is an official delivery partner of the Start Up Loans programme, providing finance, free business support and mentoring to new businesses throughout England and Scotland. To date, they have helped 600 entrepreneurs with over £4m in startup finance and, in this workshop, they will explain what the programme entails and how it can benefit your new business.
Social Media Marketing
Using social media effectively is crucial to the success of every startup business these days. In2Wrk will give you an introduction to their brand new ‘Social Media for Business Use’ (Level 1) courses, looking at how to create a social media presence, how to interact with customers and how to use Google.
Time allowing, you will be able to chat with an experienced business adviser on a one-to-one basis to discuss your idea and requirements – just a few minutes can have a huge impact for your new business idea!
