FREE Business Webinars for Wealden based businesses

Starting your own business is hard work and not without risks. It demands long hours, enthusiasm and determination. It is crucial that you get good sound advice before starting a new business venture. Preparation is key so before you take the plunge access as much help as you can. 

Due to Covid, we have been unable to deliver our FREE one day business start-up workshops to Wealden residents. Together with Wealden District Council we have developed a series of webinars made up of the various components of the start up workshops.

These workshops are FREE to any Wealden resident/business.
