Starting Your Business

Starting a new business or working for yourself is exciting, but it can be scary too. You’ve so many new skills to learn and so many questions to ask. Unsurprisingly, studies have shown that new businesses that take advice are far more likely to succeed – and that’s why we’re here to help.

At WSX we’re passionate about seeing new businesses start and flourish. Our ‘new business’ programmes will help you: develop your business idea into a clear plan for success; comply with legislation and tax laws; understand finances and manage your cashflow; and improve your sales and marketing skills.

Programmes are delivered by our highly experienced team, all of whom are experienced business people. You’ll get practical advice in a stimulating and friendly environment – plus, our services are very reasonably priced, often heavily subsidised, and sometimes free.

Get in touch on 01329 223242 or e-mail to see how we can help you get going and succeed.
