Entrepreneurs-to-be can get business start-up advice at weekly sessions in Coventry

ENTREPRENEURS in Coventry are being given the opportunity to put their business ideas to a start-up expert at drop-in sessions being held in the city.

Individuals on the verge of establishing their own business or who have recently set up their own venture can call in to see Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Enterprise Coach Gavin Barnett at the Wheelhouse workspace, Coventry between 10am and 4pm each Thursday.

Gavin said: “It’s great to finally be able to meet people face-to-face again and this is especially important to those individuals who are just starting out who want to meet and talk about their ideas.

“I will be available between 10am and 4pm every Thursday at the Wheelhouse for an initial conversation and I can then advise on the support that’s right for each individual depending on what stage they are at with their business.”

Gavin will be available to give initial advice on the business and can point in individuals to a range of support on offer from the Chamber and other partners.

He added: “It can be anything from setting up a business bank account through to marketing and social media and it’s important that people know the support is there for them.

“As well as that, it’s a chance to see the space at the Wheelhouse for those individuals who want to get out of the house, into an office environment and also network with like-minded people.”

The start-up support is funded by Coventry City Council, through the Additional Restrictions Grant for businesses.
