I am writing to let you know about some upcoming workshops and a national programme which may be of interest to your networks.
As part of the South Bristol Enterprise Support programme, we will be running several specialist workshops over the next few weeks, both in-person in South Bristol and online. We understand that committing to a full learning programme can be too much for some people when they’re starting a business, so we have designed the following workshops based on what our clients are telling us they need the most:
- Green thinking and planet friendly actions with Paula Malone, an educator and climate change consultant leads this inspiring and interactive session with practical tips to help your business be more environmentally friendly. 25th May, 09-10.30, online.
- Finance essentials with Ben Steele of Steele Financial, covering all the jargon and info that HMRC will need from you as a start-up. 25th May, 2-4pm, Windmill Hill City Farm.
- Spreadsheet tips and tricks with Laura Gemmell, data wizard and Founder of Taught By Humans, one of our recent Getting Serious course participants. 23rd June, 10-12, online.
- Applying for project funding with Susan Moores, entrepreneurship facilitator and all-round good egg. This session is aimed at those applying for grants such as The National Lottery’s Awards for All. The Ledbury Room, The Gatehouse Centre, 17th June.
- We also have a re-run of intellectual property and protecting your IP with Dave Morgan of DMIP Solutions. If you missed the last one but want to know more about your intellectual property join us on 17th October in the John James room at Windmill Hill City Farm, 10-12.30.
The SSE also launched the Community Business Trade Up 2022 programme today in partnership with Power to Change. This year SSE is keen to support early stage (less than 4 years old) community businesses that are:
- Led by board/team who are mostly from a racialised & minoritised community
- Led by a board or team who are mostly young people (aged 16-35)
- Or located in & supporting deprived or disadvantaged local communities
It’s for community business leaders in England and provides the skills to help diversify income from trading, have more impact, resilience and be sustainable. It’s a FREE learning programme, a Match Trading grant up to £5,000, a mentor and a network of peers.
Applications are open until 1pm, Tuesday 28th June 2022.
Do forward on to any organisations you think could benefit!
If you have any questions or would like any more info about any of the above, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
All the best,
marketing associate – SBES (South Bristol Enterprise Support)
