Do you run a business in Richmondshire? Are you thinking about starting one?
If so, you're in the right place: a free package of business support is available this autumn, thanks to Richmondshire District Council.
Places are limited, so read on to find out how to apply.
Designed especially for enterprises in the area, this latest offering from Business in Richmondshire comes direct to your home or office.
There are two programmes:
The former runs over seven weeks; the latter is an intensive weekend.
Whichever package you choose, Business in Richmondshire has put together a compelling range of support:
There is a strict maximum of 15 businesses for each programme, which are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis – so it’s essential that you apply now. It’s free and takes less than a minute.
Just complete the form on this page. All we need is your name and email address; leave the rest for later, if you like.
If you're still undecided, you can find out more about the programme below or ask us questions by clicking the support link.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Any business based in Richmondshire or any resident of the district wanting to set up in business. You must be 18 years or older.
The programme is entirely free. It is funded by Richmondshire District Council.
You can choose one of two pathways: Growth (weekly) or Start-up (weekend). The first has weekly Zoom calls, but you can listen to or watch the pre-recorded material at your own pace; the last is held over an intensive weekend.
We're asking you to commit to the full programme of seven or eight workshops, so you get to know everyone on the programme.
No, but we hope you listen to or watch the material as it will help you get the most out of the course.
Yes. You will be expected to work with other delegates on the calls. Unless there is a good reason (and we realise there might be) you will also be asked to turn on your camera.
Yes, the course is accredited with SFEDI
