Do you want to start up or grow your business? At Build-A-Business you can be informed about market research, business planning, Intellectual Property, registration and much more. They undertake a diagnostic of your business and put together a plan for your next steps and how they can continue to support you through the Build A Business project and our partners. Whether you're already started up or just have an idea for a business, they are here to help.

Through workshops, events, one to one help and advice sessions, we will be offering tailored help to support new businesses and entrepreneurs.

Please note: These are fully funded programmes. Failure to attend on two separate occasions without prior cancellation will result in you being barred from attending future workshops. This is due to the cost of setting up each workshop and making preparations based on the number of sign-ups. 

The next four Bury workshops will run from Thursday 25 April 2024.

You can book for each workshop via Eventbrite.
