Outset brings award-winning business support to Bournemouth

Bournemouth_Team1Business creation and support specialists YTKO Group were recently awarded the contract to deliver business support in Bournemouth under their award-winning Outset brand. The team supports people from all ages or backgrounds – especially women, black and minority ethnic (BME) or people with disabilities – in setting up their own business.

In the last three years, the award-winning Outset programme has nationally helped thousands of people to explore enterprise through innovative business start-up workshops, one-to-one coaching, post-start support activities and networking events. It has created more than 3,000 sustainable new businesses and jobs.

Programme Director for Outset Bournemouth, Zoe Bradley, said: “The town needs this injection of specialist support to boost the local economy. Running your own business is hugely rewarding but we also know how daunting it can be.

“There is a wealth of creativity in Bournemouth and we are available to support eligible people who want to start and grow a sustainable business – we’re already helping over 25 clients on the Introduction to Enterprise and Business Start Up programme.

“The team includes a range of advisors who have been chosen for their local knowledge and hands on business expertise. With many years of combined knowledge and experience, your business will get the start it deserves and you’ll learn everything you need to know about building a sustainable business”.
