Hertfordshire residents looking to start their own business can now receive free business start-up advice and support in the form of workshops and networking opportunities, one-to-one advice (in person or online) and access to business start up incubators which provide modern, flexible hot-desking facilities and an on-site business advisor to help guide you through each stage of the start-up process. Those receiving support on The Hertfordshire Start-up Programme may also be eligible for a £1000 ‘Start-up Grant’ or a £3000 ‘Growth Escalator Grant’ – subject to eligibility requirements.
The programme will run until the end of 2018. Between now and then it is envisaged that this support will help to start-up over 370 new businesses across Hertfordshire.
This programme is part of a wider package of specialist business support which Hertfordshire LEP expects will allow SMEs to flourish and grow.
