The Enterprise inCharnwood programme is being run by CASE, a Leicestershire- based business support service. It is funded by Charnwood Borough Council as part of the inCharnwood initiative which encourages business growth and new investment in to the borough. The new programme provides advice and information on starting a business and helping existing businesses to grow. The friendly, impartial, no-commitment approach will be of particular use to people who have always dreamed of setting up an enterprise but for whatever reason are yet to take those first steps. Workshop topics will include starting a business, finance, managing people and marketing while the drop-in sessions are like a ‘surgery’ where any business matter can be discussed. Ian Wilson, from CASE, said: “We are looking forward to working with people in Charnwood who wish to start their own business or take the next step with their existing business.” “Although businesses thrive best when they have minimal involvement by government, at whatever level, there is a role for local councils to assist people who either want to set up a company or new businesses that need some advice”, said David. “What is important to new businesses”, added Chris “is giving them the confidence to project themselves into the marketplace and the sessions will hopefully provide people with the business know-how to do this in the most effective manner”. Enterprise inCharnwood will take place on Wednesdays at a number of locations across Charnwood including Shepshed, Sileby and Loughborough.
