Start your own business

Learn how to start your own business

We’re here to help you learn what it takes to become your own boss and start a business. There are lots of reasons why you might be thinking of starting your own business, but not knowing where to begin, may be preventing you from making those important first steps. 

That’s where we can help with one of our FREE Explore Enterprise courses.  

Find out if starting a business is right for you

We’re working in partnership with Digital Remit to provide a FREE course to help you decide whether you could be a successful business owner. No business experience or plan is required – just bring your ideas!  

With a series of on-demand videos, live workshops and supporting resources, we will take you through the process of starting a business step by step. From fleshing out your ideas and identifying the support available to you, to thinking about how you can attract and retain customers, we can help you understand what you need to do to turn your ideas into a reality.
