Starting your own business

Starting a new business can be both exciting and daunting. We can help with your queries and problems.

Business advice and support in the county:

  • Business support events – workshops and advice on a range of different areas about business start-up including intellectual property (IP), social media and websites, tax and record keeping and self-employment
  • Growth Hub - a dedicated support service run by the county council and University of Northampton to help businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs based in the county to get started and grow their business
  • Enterprise Hubs – the library service has a range of local and national reference sites aimed at helping you start up and maintain a new business, including mentoring, start-up advice, loans, training and networking

 

Top tip: stick to what you know when starting a business. Set up a business plan based on a need you yourself have, that is not properly addressed by existing suppliers. [Source: the BBC]
