Free two-day course in King's Lynn for start-up businesses

By Lynn News Reporter

Good news if you’re wondering what Brexit really means as the word has now been added to the Oxford English Dictionary. Grexit interestingly was added at the same time. Whilst I love coincidences, it’s clear that Grexit isn’t occupying the Greeks at the moment quite the same as its sister entry here.

Sadly, in terms of what Brexit means for small businesses you won’t find this is in the OED as no one actually knows.

What is interesting though is that throughout 2018 there have been a steady stream of entrepreneurs looking to start their own businesses. That’s not inconsistent with a recent Opinium Research survey of around 1000 businesses titled “Optimism in the Face of Uncertainty” which not surprisingly concludes businesses are getting on with things with an encouraging level of post Brexit optimism.

But it’s not Brexit that’s concerning potential start up entrepreneurs, rather avoiding the common pitfalls that can so quickly uproot their business. Fortunately, the two day “First Steps to Start Up” programme that runs at KLIC in King’s Lynn every month and has helped dozens of people with key advice and information on how to finance, start and run a business.

The next course on October 10 and 11 is fully funded so free for anyone in the King’s Lynn area. You’ll have plenty of time to work through your ideas, talk to others and learn new ways to help ensure you get your business off to a flying start. You will also discover how to get the most from your market research as well as how to set up a business and turn an idea into a successful enterprise. The programme is delivered in a relaxed and friendly environment at KLIC, King’s Lynn newest and most iconic Innovation Centre right next to the A47.
