Warwickshire Business Start-Up Programme
Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce deliver a business start-up programme across Warwickshire on behalf of the County Council and all five District and Borough Councils.
It offers a programme of one-to-one business coaching and workshops to new businesses and residents looking to start a business. For more information and to register, visit the Chamber of Commerce’s website.
The programme is funded by UK Government via the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and Warwickshire County Council. It forms part of the Business Growth Warwickshire programme.
Warwickshire County Council also supports Coventry and Warwickshire Reinvestment Trust’s “JumpStart” project. Jumpstart is designed to give people thinking about starting a business the courage, confidence and skills needed. It offers virtual workshops, networking, skills & knowledge from industry experts and access to start-up finance.
