Black Country entrepreneurs are being encouraged to join a new group aimed at making setting up a business as easy as possible.
Black Country Enterprise, part of Black Country Chamber, hosts monthly events, called The 10 Club, which give new small business owners the opportunity to network, share ideas, and take part in workshops to improve skills.
BCE delivers the Business Link West Midlands Enterprise Service in the area and it also delivers a number of other contracts in the start-up field on behalf of local authorities and other organisations.
The next event, focussing on communications and networking skills, has Sylvia Smith, of Wordsmith Consultants, as guest speaker and takes place on Tuesday, August 12 at 6pm at the Dudley Priory Club, Priory Road, Dudley.
BCE head Chris Cooper said: “The Black Country was built on entrepreneurship and we are delighted to be helping so many people continue this tradition. The network is specifically targeted at young businesses who would find other networking events inappropriate and the majority of members will be businesses which we have supported to start.
“We want BCE to be the first place people turn to when they are setting up a new business. We have advisers ready to help and the 10 Club and other support services we offer have proved to be invaluable to those people looking to take the first step on the business ladder.”
BCE is a leading start-up provider in the West Midlands and also delivers funding projects in Bloxwich, Walsall and the Greets Green area of Sandwell.
