To illustrate how people benefit from membership of the club, this example briefly walks through the support provided to a restaurateur in developing his idea.
This entrepreneur attended a networking club and during his time there he expressed his desire to take his home based business to the high street.
On joining the club he was able to attend the "drop-in" business support workshops where he was able to bring his idea to fruition, receiving business development support in the areas of business planning, financial planning, advertising & marketing and legal advice on premises. We were also able to introduce the entrepreneur to agencies that helped towards getting his business started. In the spirit of continuity, which is a constant theme of our service, we were able to hold one of the monthly networking clubs at his restaurant.
We continue to work with many Leicester based entrepreneurs our recent clients include:
A mobile catering business looking to establish both a base in the city and to develop further into the events environment.
A music pioneer looking to take his and his bands talent on a profitable live music tour and deliver a solid revenue stream from all his music merchandising.
An owner a small dance fitness business needed help setting up their business website.
We also work with people referred to us by word of mouth and from other sources including Job Centre Plus, Leicestershire Libraries, ZInthiya Trust, St Martins Conference Centre Outreach Service and African Caribbean Citizens Forum.
