Budding entrepreneurs in Broxtowe are invited to a free start-up bootcamp

23/01/24 - A free, two-day online bootcamp is offering aspiring entrepreneurs in Broxtowe the tools they need to set up and run a successful business.

The Nottinghamshire start-up bootcamp is available to individuals based in Broxtowe and other districts in Nottinghamshire. It is part of a wider Accelerator project which is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and delivered by East Midlands Chamber. The project provides essential support to pre and early-stage businesses, offering vital interventions to boost the survival rates of businesses within their first three years of trading.

The online programme is being delivered by NBV Enterprise Solutions Ltd on a selection of dates: 22-23 February and 14-15 March. Each session takes place from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

Topics covered at the bootcamp include how to develop the knowledge, skills, and characteristics needed by business owners, legal responsibilities, tax, National Insurance and VAT, record keeping and business banking, as well as product pricing and cash flow forecasting.

Diane Beresford, Deputy Chief Executive of East Midlands Chamber, said:

“We know from research undertaken by the Office for National Statistics that over 90% of enterprises are still active after their first year of trading. However, this figure falls sharply after three years. The Nottinghamshire start-up Accelerator project provides the support needed at the earliest stages of conceiving and running a business to give it the best foundation for a long-lasting and successful future.”

Individuals based in Broxtowe seeking to explore self-employment are invited to book their place on their chosen dates on the NBV Enterprise Solutions website (Opens in a new window).
