Friday 12th October First steps

The focus of this session is on how your business will make money, your ideal customers, why they would want to buy and how will you market to them. We’ll touch on market research and competitor analysis as well as your different ways to sell. We’ll also cover some of the legal aspects of running a business and your questions about starting up.

Saturday 13th October Understanding finance and business planning

Today the focus is on the all-important numbers. How much do you need to earn? What are your start-up costs? What’s your break-even point? Why is cashflow vital? What taxes will you have to pay and when? We’ll also look at how you pull everything together into a Business Plan and your options for raising finance if you need it.
