Staffordshire support scheme for county start-ups.
A support programme for people with ambitions of starting their own business and whose current employment may be at risk due to the coronavirus crisis has been launched by the county council.
The Staffordshire Start-up Programme aims to build on and complement existing support for new businesses, with a focus on helping them to be robust in overcoming future challenges.
People across the county who have been furloughed, whose job may be at risk, who have already been made redundant or see this period as an opportunity to progress their start-up plans are being urged to get in touch.
It will be delivered by the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce on behalf of the county council and provide online sessions offering support and advice on a range of issues.
Follow-up support to access finance and on getting through the critical early stages of business operations will also be available.
