Free Business Support Still Available for Richmond Businesses
There is still time to sign-up for the August FREE business support workshops – aimed at helping local businesses improve their marketing, sales and financial strategies, identify funding opportunities and network with others.
Launched earlier this 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.
There are still four sessions left in August, with tickets available. They are:
Sales and Marketing Strategies that get results for Food Related Businesses (22nd August from 10-12noon) in Richmond Annexe. This workshop will focus on a 12-step growth tool that will break down the key areas businesses need to work on to grow.

Entrepreneurs and Business Owners social meet-up (28th August from 12-1.30pm) in Duke Street Church. This event is a great way to expand business networks and make new connections.

Cllr Geoff Acton, Cabinet Member Business, Economy and Employment said:
“Over the next few months we have commissioned dozens of workshops and seminars to support new and growing businesses in the borough.
“We want new businesses to know that Richmond upon Thames is a great place to do business and that there is an established network of local support to help them. Our new Step Up, Start Up, Scale Up programme is a comprehensive support package to help new and existing businesses make the most of their opportunities. And most of all, they are free!”
