Last week, Enterprise Hub partner; The Women’s Organisationhosted a Business Start Up Conference for budding entrepreneurs across Liverpool City Region. Over 30 individuals attended the conference to hear all about the support that Enterprise Hub can offer them.

We were joined by our event sponsors, Nick Bell from StartUp Direct and Lee Brooks from World Pay. Nick told the entrepreneurs all about their loan scheme that they can offer to businesses who need a helping hand financially to get started. And Lee let everyone know about World Pay’s great technology for payment that many of the entrepreneurs may need to invest in when they are up and running.
As well as this Enterprise Hub invited Florentyna Sidery to speak about the support that The Women’s Organisation had given her when starting her business Florentyna Designs. Asking business owners who have received support from Enterprise Hub to speak was a great way for the individuals attending the conference to hear first-hand about the support that they too, can receive.

Our Training Coordinator; Bernie Cox talked to the attendees all about the characteristics of an entrepreneur, thinking outside of the box being one of them! Splitting the attendees into small groups and asking them to think of all the possible uses for the cardboard box that they had been given.

And of course, as always there was time for a little networking. Even though our guests hadn’t yet started their businesses, they knew that it was never too soon to start networking and getting the word out there about what they intend to do! Following on from the Start Up Conference, everyone that was in attendance and was eligible for Enterprise Hub support will be paired up with an Enterprise Hub partner and begin working on turning their dreams of starting a business, into a reality!

Thank you to everyone who attended the event, and a special thank you to our event sponsors; Start Up Direct and World Pay and our guest speaker; Florentyna.
