Mid Sussex District Council is sponsoring a series of FREE online workshops to help local entrepreneurs turn their business ideas into start-up companies.

Business experts will deliver six, two-hour online sessions that provide all the information an aspiring business owner could need to turn their idea into reality. The free course is live and interactive, providing the opportunity to ask specific questions and network with other attendees in a similar position.

The ‘How to Start a Start-up’ workshops will run from Tuesday 12 October until Tuesday 19 October 2021. All sessions will be provided by The Business Hothouse, a business support programme that provides a range of workshop and 1-2-1 mentoring sessions to help small businesses grow and develop.

The online workshops will help attendees define the purpose of their business idea by focussing on how it will solve the needs and wants of potential customers. Experts will provide advice on market research, pricing strategy, cash flow forecasting, marketing and all the relevant legal obligations such as Income Tax, VAT, National Insurance, Corporation Tax, contracts and insurance.
