Business Support Services
Having the vision to create a new business or further develop and grow an existing enterprise is just the beginning of an exciting process. Whether or not you realise that vision will depend on receiving the right help.
If you are in the process of planning your business, have just started trading or have been in business for some time, Causeway Enterprise Agency can provide you with the tailored support you need to manage it more efficiently, productively and profitably.
Support for New Starts
The first step is to talk over your ideas with one of our business advisors, all of whom are members of the Institute of Business Consulting. They will then guide you through the rest of the process through the “Go For It" Start A Business Programme. The Go For It Programme will help you to develop your business idea and equip you with the necessary business skills. The Key issues covered on the Programme include:
- General Business Practice.
- Sales and Marketing.
- Legal and Statutory issues.
Other elements of the Go For It Programme include assisting with market research, writing a business plan and advice on sources of funding (where available). From early planning, right through to launching and developing your new business, confidential advice and counselling can be invaluable and by accessing this support service, your business is ensured a better foundation for success.
