Starting or growing a business in a recession

Should you start a new business or invest in growing your current one in an uncertain economic climate? There are plenty of enormously successful businesses that have emerged from recessions and our support over the coming fortnight aims to help you to start and grow using our free, expert knowledge. Our Facebook Live session with our in-house business expert, Paul Dallibar gives you the opportunity to pose your questions regarding the risk to new businesses during an economic recession with immediate feedback.

Paul also leads our How to Start a Start-up remote, intensive boot camp, which returns next Tuesday 27th October at the two alternative times of 10am and 7pm. Offered as a series of six, two-hour, daily sessions at the end of which you will have all the knowledge you need to launch your new business.

Part of starting a new business is writing an effective business plan and WSX Enterprise are offering a remote workshop to ensure that you develop a plan that sets you up for success. A good business plan is also a critical component of any application that you make for business finance and WSX Enterprise are also offering 1-2-1 sessions to explain the best finance options for your business.

If you intend to make an application for an award from the Invest4 Grant Fund, Get Set For Growth have a dedicated free remote workshop session that will help you to complete the application form to a high standard, increasing your chances of receiving and award from the fund.

If your business is located within the Lewes District, EDEAL are offering a business start-up programme as well as a programme that will develop your leadership and management skills.

As ever, all of our support is open to anyone who is 18+, is provided by business experts and is free because it’s government funded.
