Regional Start

The Regional Start initiative, formerly Go For It, is designed to assist people who are thinking of starting their own business. The programme will provide individuals with support through 1 to 1 business mentoring and a workshop which will give them the tools necessary to complete a business plan, develop new skills such as marketing, operational management and financial planning and management. Clients will also have the opportunity to work alongside one of our mentors who can advise them during the start up phase and in some cases help them to source financial assistance.

What’s involved on the programme?

  • Support to develop a business plan
  • Business mentoring to assist on the start-up journey
  • Potential to access business start-up grants
