Thursday Start-Up Focus - 11th November


Join our partners Worcestershire Libraries (incorporating the BIPC) where they will be bringing together two panels of ‘real people’ for you to interrogate and learn from. 


Our very own Ant Parsons from the Enterprising Worcestershire Start-Up Club will also be on hand as a panel member.


The first will be a panel of local people who have recently successfully started or are in the process of starting their own businesses. From highly tailored nutrition and personal training, through exotic food and virtual assistance to a fast growing tuition business.

The second is a panel of professionals serving new start and growing business in the region: Peter McCann an expert start-up and business coach, Phil Ingle who does finance for the financially averse; Anthony Parsons from Enterprising Worcestershire; and, Esther Partridge-Warner from Online Media Works.

		How to start a business image

The panels will examine the challenges and triumphs that start-up businesses encounter, sharing how respond to them and tips to smooth the path to a successful start-up. First from the perspective of those in the thick of existing new businesses and the second from the perspective of those helping people navigate their way from surviving to thriving.

Each discussion will be opened to attendees to ask their own questions in an approachable context in which there is 'no such thing as a stupid question'.
