Making the leap: are you ready to start a business? Webinar

18 Jul 2024

If you think you’re ready to start a business, join us for this exciting webinar where we’ll find out what it’s really like to take the leap. Hosted by the team who bring you the Strive Live Start-Up Incubator.

Free webinar – Thursday 18th July: 11:00-12:00

We’ve brought together an amazing panel of local people who’ve all gone into business in the last three years. Tune in to hear their stories, advice and what they wished they’d known, before putting your own questions to them.

We’re joined by:

  • Neil Webster, who’ll share his experience of ditching his successful career to take on the challenge of an existing business – the Marigold Cafe and Boating Experience (Knaresbrough).
  • Harry & Alison Gray, who share their experience of working together to launch a unique rural business – the My Happy Hounds a 7 acre dog exercise, training and glamping centre (Hambleton). 
  • Joe Joyce, who together with his family have won several awards since they took the plunge in 2020 to run the Harrogate Brewery Co.

For a longer view, we’ll hear from Enterprise Cube’s own Paul Funnell. Paul has experience of launching a cleaning business and building it up over 25 years, into a seven figure empire.

The webinar will cover:

  • Things to consider before starting a business
  • Real stories from real start-ups
  • Hear their top tips for you
  • The things they wished known before I started
  • Local support schemes and where to find start-up help
