Spaces still available on green business start-up programme
10 September 2020
There is still time to sign up for an online business start-up programme aimed at growing the green economy, which is being supported by South Lakeland District Council (SLDC).
SLDC has partnered with Bentley-Brown Associates to offer the Future Fixers’ Business Start-up Programme, designed to support new enterprises which have, or which wish to create, a purposeful business. Future Fixers also welcomes those in the early stages of business, who would like to re-evaluate their business following the Covid-19 crisis.
Key aspects of the Future Fixers start-up programme, run by Kendal-based Karen Bentley-Brown and David Brown of Bentley-Brown Associates, are:
- It focuses first on helping people understand what motivates them, and how they can remain resilient, a key to running a successful business;
- It explores business planning, marketing, sales, and finance but always with a focus on how a business can have a positive impact on people and planet;
- Business owners who complete the programme are then supported with a year’s free access to Future Fixers’ Coaching Circle, a fortnightly online group coaching session that keeps entrepreneurs motivated and on track;
- Participants become part of a network for like-minded businesses where they can create opportunities, share ideas, build partnerships, and benefit from practical support.
The start-up programme begins on Wednesday 16 September but there is still time to get involved.
