The Queen’s Enterprise Award-winning initiative, which offers pop-up business training across the country, is running a free online programme for budding Kent and Medway entrepreneurs wanting help to get their idea off the ground and grow it into a successful start-up.

Thanks to Kent County Council (KCC) sponsorship, the 10-day live learning event which starts on Monday (19th July) is open to any Kent and Medway resident with a business vision.

Covering a range of subjects between 10am and 3pm daily over zoom, the course will give people the confidence to act on their business ambition.

Delegates will also be taught practical skills such as how to build a website from scratch, take payments online and use social media to find customers and build a brand.

KCC’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development Derek Murphy said: “The pandemic has turned a lot of people’s lives upside down. While some have lost jobs and are looking for a new direction, others have decided time’s too short to waste to be stuck in an unsatisfying role and want to run their own fulfilling venture.

“There’s also plenty of people with years of commercial experience seeking support to adapt to the ‘new normal’ ways of running a business because of coronavirus – including greater online presence, pre-booking and use of channels such as Instagram and Facebook for promotion.

“As the country continues its COVID recovery, we’re sponsoring this course to help people, whatever age, in work or out, gain the know-how needed to start, build up and run a business today and to make a positive move.”
