Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership

Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership

How do I get started?

The most important thing is to make sure you have validated your idea with potential customers before you invest in resources and time to turn your idea into a viable business.

Ideas are great, but ultimately you will need to ensure that there is demand and a need for what you wish to offer, that you can quantify. We can help you with this process.

What is my next step?
