Local business workshops

Budding entrepreneurs looking for inspiration and support can take advantage of a range of free services offered by Business Gateway Inverurie including local workshops and events, the business information service and a website with practical information, guides and tools.

The workshops cover a number of important topics and the new series will include specially tailored events to benefit potential and new business owners.

The comprehensive programme, which runs throughout January and February and takes place in Crichiebank Business Centre, Mill Road, Port Elphinstone, includes start-up awareness, business planning, book keeping and finance.

Business Gateway’s operations director Andrew Burnett said: “The first few months of the year are always busy as many people start the year by making big changes in their life.

“Setting up and running a business can be a scary prospect but our services are designed to ensure that anyone with an idea is given the best support and advice. We have assisted many local business owners to realise their ambitions and to help make their venture a success.”
