Start Your Own Business in 2017

Start Your Own Business in 2017

This 180 page book is packed with start-up information and contact details designed to help you start your business successfully.

We have been running SYOB for over 10 years now and have accumulated an enormous amount of information which could make the difference between start-up success or failure.

Starting a business is easy but keeping it going and making a profit is a completely different proposition. The good news is that there are tried and tested 'rules' which have consistently proved to work.

As the old addage says 'you don't know what you don't know'!

You can download the whole book now (free of charge).

Business Enterprise Support (BES) as a social enterprise, are a non-profit organisation aiming to help people, of all backgrounds, to become self-employed.

We've been established since 1983 so we know a thing or two about the vital information people need when starting any new business. We've helped everyone from gardeners to computer programmers; from artists to plumbers; from cleaners to photographers. We've helped them all. We understand that every business is different. That's why we treat all our clients as individuals. You'll have questions and concerns that are unique to your idea; our experienced enterprise coaches and business mentors will be able to provide you with support that is tailored to your own needs.

Our experienced team will be able to answer your questions directly or signpost you to the appropriate specialist organisations for more specific queries you may have. In addition to the support from our coaches and mentors, you'll also meet with other entrepreneurs going through the same journey into self-employment. You'll be able to network with each other at the group workshops and also use our exclusive online forums to chat and share with each other too.

Our support doesn't end when you start your new business either. We organise exclusive networking events for our members and run special masterclasses covering more specific areas of running a business, such as social media and managing public relations.

We appreciate that the first few months of being self-employed are the most important and also the most stressful. Preparation and planning are key to your new business' success. We can show you what to expect and give you the skills required to have the confidence to succeed, ensuring you cover all bases before you start trading.

All you need to access our service is passion and drive.
