Entrepreneurs pass on advice
Published at 10:13, Tuesday, 13 November 2012
PASS it on! This is the theme of Global Entrepreneurship Week, November 12 to 17 – a campaign to promote entrepreneurship globally.
Pass it on encourages young entrepreneurs to start a business. Experienced business owners and support bodies are being urged to pass on the practical help and support needed by early start-ups and individuals who are considering taking the plunge.
Pass it on advocates delivery of collaborative, local and practical help so people can learn more about the wealth of support that is available through bodies such as Furness Enterprise, chambers of commerce, Manufacturing Advisory Service, Furness College and the University of Lancaster.
The recently introduced Coastal Communities Funded programme to “unleash growth in coastal Furness” takes Global Entrepreneurship Week themes on over a two-year period by enabling:
- People who are not yet entrepreneurs to think about starting up their own business;
- Improve entrepreneurship skills for aspiring entrepreneurs and start-ups;
- Help people to access practical support – locally, regionally and nationally by passing on skills, contacts, knowledge, confidence and resources.
If you’re about to start a business, or are in the early stages of running one, contacting my colleagues Val Robinson and Helen Johnson is recommended to progress your entrepreneurial journey.
This week is also UK Trade and Investment export week.
UKTI experts are providing bespoke advice, talking about new real life experiences of doing business overseas and briefing businesses on whether they are ready to export.
Three important events in the northwest are:
November 13 – International Search Marketing for Export Success – how to optimise your web site to maximise its effectiveness with search engines for UK and international sales;
November 14 – Promoting Recovery Through Exports is taking place on Radisson Edwardian Hotel, Manchester 7.30am to 10am;
November 15 – Inspirational Times, Inspirational Women is an event encouraging women to export at Low Wood Bay Hotel, Windermere (0845 226 0040).
Here in Cumbria, UKTI representatives Peter Gawn-Caine (email Peter.Gawne-Cain@uktinorthwest.co.uk tel 0845 603 7053) and Ian Redman, who visit Furness Enterprise today, are lead deliverers of export support to companies within the peninsula.
