Start-Up Croydon helps those wanting to start their own business with both business planning and the development of basic business skills.
Our initial task is to ensure that our clients have a realistic understanding the way of life which accompanies self-employment; notably the impact working 50-60 hours a week can have on personal lives and relationships.

After the New Business Programme training you will probably have many more questions, you can then book a free appointment with one of our business mentors. We will constructively review your business plans (Not write them for you!) and cash flow. We can also introduce you to sources of finance, web designers, accountants, solicitors etc. This can also, if applicable lead to ongoing business training & mentoring.
