Free business startup course

Smart Dog Education CIC - a female lead business startup company is running a free Business start up and early stage business growth programme in Jan and Feb 2022 with a £500 ‘best new business prize.’

The course is 6 sessions in total, every week for 6 weeks, running at Field Place in Worthing Tuesdays 11 am – 2 pm starting Tuesday 11th Jan, which is sign up and information day.

The course then starts in earnest on 18th Jan and the last session which is the 'Dragons Den and £500 prize celebration day' is February 22nd 2022.

Entirely free, this course will be delivered by experts in funding and social enterprise and will cover all aspects of starting and running a business in the UK in an interactive and interesting way. We will pay travel for people from Brighton and Hove as well as locally in Worthing.

Smart Dog will help participants ensure they get the legal structure, name, finances, marketing and customers. Run by expert business advisors, they will help you learn from other’s mistakes, and find you routes to local funding and marketplaces.

20 places available – anyone of any age (over 18) can join, the only entry requirements are being unemployed, economically inactive or on benefits.

Learning with others is sometimes the best and most motivational way to take in information.  

No one can pretend that writing a business plan or learning how to do a cash flow is fun, but we can promise to make all aspects of business start up interesting, relevant and help you set achievable goals.

You’ve got everything to gain and nothing to lose!
