Event summary:

Business Wales’ Starting and Running Your Own Business webinar aims to support anyone thinking of starting a new venture, providing an understanding of the main aspects of turning a business idea or hobby into a viable business.

The webinar covers topics including developing a business idea, sourcing funding, business planning, pricing, marketing, and some of the financial implications of running your own business.

It is delivered by experienced advisers and provides the opportunity to ask questions via live chat.

As with the face-to-face workshop, anyone taking part in the webinar will also be able to have additional 1-2-1 support with an adviser, via a telephone appointment while restrictions are in place.

This webinar is also suitable for anyone who has been running their business for a while, but would like to make sure that they are aware of all the issues they need to consider.
