Start-up support - an overview

Introduction

If you run a start-up business as an entrepreneur, there may be extra help available for you if you are a woman, over 50, disabled, from a minority ethnic group, a young entrepreneur, or if you are on a low income.

Much of this help takes the form of mentoring and networking - but you should also be able to access targeted advice, support and even apply for loans and grants.

This guide will explain about sources of funding that might be available to you and where to get help, advice and training.
