Do you have a great idea for a business but don’t know where to start?

Are you ready to start your business but need some expert advice?

Starting a business is both an exciting and challenging time. At Cool Ventures, we have helped hundreds of people to decide whether running a business is right for them. Whether you take the step into self-employment or running a limited company, we can provide practical advice and support to help you avoid some common pitfalls along the way.

Business Start Up Programme

Our Business Start Up Programme has been developed specifically for those considering self- employment or setting up a limited company. This programme will help you understand the viability of your business idea and will provide the essential guidance, tools and advice you need to help you start and run a successful business. 

The programme consists of a mix of bespoke one-to-one advice and workshops with the option of ongoing mentoring through your first year of trade should you need it.

Our Starting in Business and Business Essentials workshops help aspiring entrepreneurs understand what it means to start and run a business. Visit our Training page to find out more about these workshops and other workshops, one-to-ones and clinics we offer.
