Free Business start up course

Shoreham by Sea, Ropetackle Centre - also available on-line

Leap out of Lockdown

Cute Dog Consulting Ltd is running a free Business start up and early stage business growth programme in October and early November 2021 in Shoreham with a £500 ‘best new business prize.’

The course is 6 sessions in total, every week for 6 weeks, running at the Ropetackle Centre on Tuesdays 11 am – 2 pm starting 5th October – dates shown below.

Entirely free, this course will be delivered by experts in funding and social enterprise and will cover all aspects of starting and running a business in the UK in an interactive and interesting way.

Cute Dog will help participants ensure they get the legal structure, name, finances, marketing and customers. Run by expert business advisors, they will help you learn from other’s mistakes, and find you routes to local funding and marketplaces.

20 places available – anyone of any age (over 18) can join, the only entry requirements are being unemployed, economically inactive or on benefits.

Learning with others is sometimes the best and most motivational way to take in information. Our last course in Steyning was incredibly successful and local business Squares Shortbread won the £500 Dragons Den prize.

No one can pretend that writing a business plan or learning how to do a cash flow is fun, but we can promise to make all aspects of business start up interesting, relevant and help you set achievable goals.

You’ve got everything to gain and nothing to lose!
