Free support for businesses this spring

Release Date: 26 February 2019

There are still spaces available at one of our free online webinars and workshops for local businesses this March, including conflict management solutions, understanding shareholder agreements, food packaging and a business clinic.

Launched last summer, the Richmond Enterprise Challenge: Step Up. Start Up. Scale Up is a new, free programme of businesses support, launched by Richmond Council and delivered by CPG Executive Consulting Ltd.

The programme aims to give new businesses the best chances of surviving and thriving the tricky early stages; and to give existing businesses the boost they need to successfully grow.

March’s workshops include:

Cllr Geoff Acton, Cabinet Member Business, Economy and Employment said:

“Already businesses across the borough are benefiting from our free workshops and seminars. And there is a lot more to come!

“There is something for all businesses – whether they are new and just starting up or if they are well established and just want some advice. We have also listened to businesses, and are providing more sessions online.

“Our new Step Up, Start Up, Scale Up programme is our most comprehensive support package ever. And most of all, workshops and support is free!”
