Free enterprise talks and support sessions for small local businesses and budding entrepreneurs will begin next month in Fareham.
Each month, two expert speakers will be presenting to share their knowledge, provide tips, advice and answer questions on a variety of relevant topics that are necessary for a thriving business.
Fareham Council has teamed up with small businesses experts Enterprise First who will run and host the events. This follows on from the successful launch of the 'Fareham First for Business' free business training and mentoring scheme in March.
Enterprise First Business Adviser, Julie Easterbrook says: "By providing these events and offering free one to one sessions, we will assist businesses to survive and grow in the town. In addition, we will stimulate local networking, encouraging opportunities and collaborations amongst Fareham business people. Whilst individual businesses will gain valuable knowledge from these events, we expect there to be a wider benefit to the business community over time."
Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward says: "These sessions are going to be beneficial to the entrepreneurial minds of Fareham. Enterprise First has a track record of offering events and support that will benefit those who are either thinking of setting up their own company or who have recently done so."
The early evening sessions will take place between 5.30pm and 7pm at the Ferneham Hall starting on Tuesday 7th July.
Free tea and coffee will be provided and there will be an opportunity for networking with other attendees.
We anticipate strong support for these events and would encourage early booking.
Please therefore register your attendance prior to the event at:
