As we look to the end of a challenging 2020 organisations MENTA, SIONIC and TuVida are helping leaders prepare for the new year. This year has changed the face of leadership and learning those lessons will be integral to the economic recovery of the UK.
Starting a business in 2021 with MENTA
Business support organisation MENTA are offering to help budding entrepreneurs start their business in 2021 by offering a free package of help and business advice. If you are based in Suffolk or Norfolk and are looking a programme to help kickstart the business then visit www.menta.org.uk/start-up-training.
The support programme consists of three workshops that must be completed and is suitable for anyone who is thinking of starting a business or has been trading for less than 12 months. The course covers ‘Business Planning’ including finance, marketing your business through social media and building a website and finally, bookkeeping which will explore National Insurance and tax.
MENTA Chief Executive Alex Till said: “I’m sure most people will be glad to see the back of 2020 and will start 2021 with new energy – which is one of the best attributes for starting a new business. Some may be considering the next step because of redundancy and this can be a wonderful opportunity to use your skills to be your own boss. Whether you want to branch out as a freelance doing what you previously did for an employer or you’ve had a hobby business and are now ready to take the next step with it, MENTA can give you the best possible start.”
