Is your business set up for success?

The Careers and Enterprise Hub in Loughborough are hosting an event series that will cover essential aspects of starting up in business, providing you with the fundamental building blocks for success. From goal setting and mindset cultivation to testing, validating, pitching, and mastering your numbers – we've got you covered, the events will be facilitated and run by Mark Taft, Local Enterprise Manager from NatWest.

As Local Enterprise Managers, they understand the challenges faced by business owners and have tailored these sessions to ensure your business becomes robust, resilient, and optimised for growth. The expertise from the ecosystem generated in Loughborough and wider region, coupled with our powerful connections, networks, and signposting, can truly make a difference in propelling your business to the next level.

These in-person sessions are open to all start ups/businesses, irrespective of sector, stage, or structure. You don't have to be a NatWest customer to attend, and attendees must be the business owner or hold significant strategic control.
