Bringing your business blueprint to life.
Setting up a successful business is for some a life-long ambition. Maybe a change in work circumstances has presented new opportunities. For others, it’s simply spotting a gap in the market.
Whatever your motivation, going it alone or with little outside help can be a challenging prospect, and it’s hard to know where to start.
Through our extensive range of resources and expert advisors, the aim at the Idea stage is to build up your knowledge, confidence and contacts, and signpost you to the right support.
Working with OxLEP Business, we can prepare you for that first important step in the business journey.
