Join the new StartUp Woking business club and give your business a supercharged boost
Starting a new business is both exhilarating and daunting at the same time. Keeping one going, even more so. This is why we’ve created the new StartUp Woking Business Club, a vibrant network of support, specifically designed to support start-ups, micro-enterprises and small businesses from Woking.
Building on the success of the Woking Works business advisory programme, the Business Liaison Team from Woking Borough Council, and created in partnership with The Inspiration Space, this exciting collaboration is set to deliver a supercharged boost to local business owners that have one goal in mind – achieving sustainable growth and making a profit in a rapidly changing and increasingly more competitive marketplace.
Giving you easy access to some of the best support in Surrey
Woking Works has supported over 300 businesses over the past five years and the new StartUp Woking business club will connect ambitious small business owners with high-quality business education, digital skills training, mentorship and connection to a vibrant entrepreneurial community, all which are critical to sustainable business growth.
As the saying goes, “ You want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far? Go together.” Add to that research from the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) that reveals, 70% of businesses that have access to mentorship and support survive more than five years (which is double the rate of non-mentored businesses over the same period in time), then a dedicated business club for fledgling enterprises makes a lot of sense.
Connecting you to the relationships, training and ecosystem of support that you need to succeed
The StartUp Woking programme is all about supporting business owners so that they develop the practical skills they need to succeed alongside an entrepreneurial mindset.
Using The Inspiration Space’s energetic and creative approach to business development and marketing training, the re-vamped StartUp Woking programme will help business owners achieve innovation, acceleration and meaningful growth.
Designed to facilitate the interesting conversations that spark bright ideas, members of the StartUp Woking Business Club can look forward to:
