Business Start-up Summer BBQ

Oakridge Golf Club Arley Lane, Nuneaton, CV10 9PH
11:00am to 3:00pm 19th Jul

The CWLEP Growth Hub would like to invite you to attend a summer BBQ for start-up businesses!

Running your own business can be isolating, and in the early stages, it may be tricky to know where to go to access support, advice and information and this can slow your business growth.

The aim is to bring together start-up businesses (registered and trading for up to 2 years) and budding entrepreneurs from across the region, to help make valuable connections and introductions in a relaxed atmosphere with some great food (and hopefully weather!) There will also be a series of short talks by local experts, who will share their top-tips, things to watch out for when you’re starting out and tools and tricks that could help you in your business journey!

You’ll even have chance to put your questions to the experts in a live Q & A session* on the day. There will also be a free goodie-bag for all attendees!
