Seminars start-up for business in Wyre Forest

The launch of Wyre Forest Business Solutions Centre (WFBSC) in October saw the University of Wolverhampton extend its offering to local businesses across the region. This month the new Centre will be holding its first Business Start-Up Seminar for budding entrepreneurs.

Offering expert advice from experienced advisors, the seminar, which is taking place on Thursday 24th November, is designed to support individuals who are considering starting a business or those in the process of setting one up. It follows a structured approach to identifying opportunities, understanding legalities and business planning.

Business start-up seminars held at existing Business Solutions Centres in Wolverhampton, Sandwell, Telford and Hereford have already helped around 200 business start-ups. To build on this success the seminars will be held regularly at the new Wyre Forest Business Solutions Centre.

Business Solutions Centres Manager, Gary Dimmock, said: “This will be the first of many Business Start-Up Seminars at the Wyre Forest Business Solutions Centre. They are invaluable for individuals who are seeking advice as they embark on a new business venture and the journey to business success.”

The Centre in Kidderminster will be offering a wide range of business support services businesses of all sizes and from all sectors. The University’s growing provision of business services demonstrates their commitment to being a key provider in the region.

Running in collaboration with Wyre Forest District Council, the Wyre Forest Business Solutions Centre is based within Wyre Forest House, council premises located on Finepoint Way in Kidderminster. The University of Wolverhampton runs all five Business Solutions Centres with each Centre working in partnership with their respective Local Authority and in collaboration with Growth Hubs.
