Starting a business during the COVID-19 crisis
Some of the world's most successful companies have been started during recessions. If you have an idea for a new business, but don't know where to start, this is the webinar for you.
In this webinar, Enterprise Nation founder, Emma Jones, talks you through the initial steps you need to take to get a business off the ground in a 30 minute presentation style. Emma is author of 'The StartUp Kit' and has advised thousands of businesses on how to launch.
Following a degree in Law and Japanese, Emma joined international accounting firm Arthur Andersen, where she worked in London, Leeds and Manchester offices and set up the firm's Inward Investment practice that attracted overseas companies to locate in the UK. In 2000, bitten by the dot.com bug, Emma left the firm to start her first business, Techlocate. After 15 months, the company was successfully sold to Tenon plc. The experience of starting, growing and selling a business from a home base gave Emma the idea for Enterprise Nation which was launched in 2006 as the home business website. The company has since expanded to become a small business membership community of over 75,000 people who benefit from events and support: online and in person. Enterprise Nation also presents a campaigning voice to government and the media on behalf of its members. In 2021, Emma was awarded a CBE for services to small businesses and entrepreneurs.
