10th Nov 2008 - Business cafe aims to unlock Lanarkshire's entrepreneurial spirit
Starting up a new business can be a daunting prospect, especially in these difficult economic times, but expert help is at hand for Lanarkshire's budding entrepreneurs.
On Monday 17th November ‘The Business Café', run by Business Gateway Lanarkshire has been organised to provide local entrepreneurs with the opportunity to chat over their ideas and find out just what it takes to set up a successful business.
The free event, held in Motherwell Heritage Centre, in High Road, takes place during Global Entrepreneurship Week, a world-wide celebration of enterprise which runs from November 17th until 23rd.
Thousands of activities will be undertaken during the week across the globe to celebrate enterprise and encourage people in every country, no matter what their age, to unlock their entrepreneurial talent.
Alan Murray, Business Advisor, Business Gateway Lanarkshire Office, said: "The Business Café idea allows people to drop by, grab a coffee and chat over their business ideas in informal surrounds with no obligation. There are huge opportunities in the Lanarkshire area for entrepreneurs even during these difficult economic times, and with the help of our advisors we hope to unlock Lanarkshire's entrepreneurial spirit."
From 11 am until 4 pm advisers from Business Gateway will be on hand to chat to anyone looking to become their own boss and provide advice on the key building blocks of running a successful business; from general start-up information to advice on marketing, finance, and funding.
For those who cannot attend the Business Café on November 17th, Business Gateway Lanarkshire Office runs one-to-one meetings in the Motherwell Heritage Centre every week.
