Free coaching for young Dales businesses

Free coaching sessions are up for grabs for young Derbyshire Dales businesses.

Companies that have been established for less than two years can claim three hours of free business support from the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Launchpad service - delivered locally by Growing Rural Enterprise Ltd on behalf of Derbyshire Dales District Council. What’s more, the service will come to you.

Julie White, who runs Growing Rural Enterprise Ltd with fellow director Nick Platt, said:

“Young businesses often need help to review where they’ve come in a relatively short time and where they want to be.

“So these free sessions can be geared to creating an action plan or a more specific objective such as a cash flow forecast, marketing plan, reviewing marketing materials, help setting up social media channels and effective networking. We are flexible and happy to meet businesses when and where it suits them.”

The Launchpad service is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund with the remaining funding provided by the District Council.

Leader of Derbyshire Dales District Council, Councillor Lewis Rose OBE said:

"Helping new businesses to start and grow is a key priority for us, and the free advice from Growing Rural Enterprise continues our commitment to help small local businesses develop and grow and, in the future, take on employees.”
