A group of Northamptonshire business owners are joining forces to host an event that supports start-ups in the county.
Entitled ‘Activate Your Business’, the business surgery event will see a panel of 11 experts offer advice to those just starting a business or who are in their first year of trading. The experts work in various areas vital to businesses in those crucial first few weeks and months including sales, social media, business strategy, PR, tax, legal contracts and more.
The surgery takes place on Wednesday 8th May at Moulton Community Centre from 10am to 1pm and costs £10 per person to attend. It aims to help those in the early stages of a business venture move forward by asking the panel of experts for advice on any challenges they may be facing or to pick their brains on their subject specialism.
