Festival of Enterprise

Back by popular demand! Festival of Enterprise returns in 2024 after the resounding success of the 2022 event! Mark your calendars for Wednesday 13th June, 9.30am to 3pm at the vibrant New Century venue in the heart of Manchester City Centre.

Are you passionate about a new business idea? Apprehensive about starting out on your own? Are you ready to start a business?

EnterprisingYou is here to support you every step of the way on your start-up journey!

Our EnterprisingYou Starting Your Business workshops are the perfect place to begin. These workshops provide you with the fundamental steps and practical knowledge and skills that will equip you to successfully launch your business with confidence. Plus, we'll demystify all that confusing business jargon you often hear. You'll be well-prepared and ready to take on your entrepreneurial adventure!

Entrepreneurial mindset & marketing

We'll explore whether self-employment is the right path for you, ensuring you make an informed decision. The workshop looks at mindset and marketing, helping you identify your target customers and devising strategies to reach them. 

Introduction to planning and finance

The workshop dives into the financial side of things, covering legal aspects, funding sources, cashflow (where appropriate we will provide templates for your use) and pricing strategies to ensure your business is profitable.

 

We offer a hybrid learning experience designed to suit your preferences. Our engaging workshops are available online for convenience and those with more time to spare for training. We also provide shorter, in-person learning workshops. These are held in each Greater Manchester borough, ensuring you'll find a venue near you. This not only allows for valuable training but also provides the opportunity to meet and network with fellow budding entrepreneurs in your local area.

Start Your Business Workshops

Start Your Business workshops run throughout the year. Each month there are five in-person workshops held alternately in North and South Greater Manchester. There are also four online workshops held each month available to the Greater Manchester community.

Below is a list of the dates and locations for the next two months. All workshops run from 9.30am - 12.30pm unless otherwise stated.

What our clients say

The course today was very helpful and insightful. I went in not sure what to expect but was made to feel welcome and involved. As someone who suffers from disability and anxiety, I can honestly say that this is the calmest experience with new people I have had in MANY years.

C Rooney

After attending the recent workshop, I have acquired substantial insights and knowledge pertinent to start-ups, which I believe will be instrumental in the progression of my entrepreneurial journey. The workshop meticulously highlighted potential challenges and emphasized the best practices in navigating the start-up landscape.

R Gogireddy

Starting up your own business can be a daunting task - but the two workshops I attended really helped me get motivated and start putting my plans into action.
