Launchpad business start-up programme

Are you planning to set up and run a new business? If so support is available from a free-to-use service which aims to help ambitious entrepreneurs set up and run successful new businesses. The service is now available in the Derbyshire Dales.

The Sheffield City Region (SCR) Launchpad service - delivered locally by Growing Rural Enterprise Ltd on behalf of Derbyshire Dales District Council - helps individuals thinking of starting a business, new businesses registered but not yet trading and businesses trading for up to 24 months who need help with their growth plans.

The overall aim of the service is to increase economic growth and job creation through fostering the development of new businesses able to survive longer term.

Available until the end 2018 the service offers both one-to-one, face-to-face advice as well as a programme of events and workshops to eligible clients across the district. Mentoring support will also be available through the main SCR Launchpad programme.

Working with our SCR partners the Launchpad provides the opportunity to tailor support services to meet your needs.
