If you are thinking about starting a business, the Go Set Up programme will help you with planning, getting set up, marketing, funding and finance.
It will provide advice and guidance from a team of experienced start-up advisers who will detail the key foundations of a successful and sustainable business.
This programme is aimed at pre-start-ups:
A series of Go Set Up workshops will be run by a qualified business adviser and cover the core essentials of how to set up a business, including:
After each workshop, the participants will be introduced to the Go Set Up Business Model Canvas (BMC) and provided with guidance on its completion. The Business Model Canvas is a business tool used to visualise, on a single page, all the building blocks that need to be considered if you are starting a business. Participants who complete their BMC will be offered an online review of their submission by a qualified business adviser.
To join the programme, you will need to be living or based in the borough of Kingston, studying full-time, or primarily planning to work in the borough. A Best-Endeavours Commitment Form will need to be completed in advance before joining the programme.
