Event for would-be Dragons

Have your say

WOULD-BE entrepreneurs from Wearside can score at the Stadium of Light this weekend.

 The ground will host a free Business Link conference offering anyone thinking about starting their own business the chance to get all the information and advice they need.

 Julie Spowart, events manager for Business and Enterprise North East, which delivers the Business Link service in the region, said: “The beginning of a new year is a time when people are thinking about changing their career and, in many cases, starting up a business and becoming their own boss.

 “Setting up a business can be a daunting experience as there’s so much to think about ,and that’s where the Start Your Business events can really make a difference.”

 The event – which runs from 10am to 4pm – is the last in a series designed to help budding “Dragons” get all of the information they need in one place and on one day, with face-to-face advice from business experts on a range of topics from finance and marketing to planning and law.
