[ ABOUT THE EVENT ]

 In 2013 the business men and women who sit on the City’s Business and Enterprise Workstream  (part of the ‘Shaping the Future of Portsmouth’ project) got together to look at the startup and first year failure rates of startup businesses in the city and look at how these could be improved. Working with Portsmouth City Council, the University of Portsmouth’s Innovation Space, Portsmouth Business School, local business people and recent startups the group mapped the seven key areas of personal growth needed to successfully start your own business. Two long-term sustainable projects were identified, these were:

 

1. A series of events to help people in prestartup, startup and success

2. A signposting resource for startups in the city.

 

Start Your Business began in February 2014 with over 100 people attending a Saturday seminar where they could hear from successful recent startups and learn more about key topics of interest to startup businesses. Tooled up began in 2015 offering a cafe style, one-to-many business support and discussion opportunity later in the year to help those that had started their business that year.  Plans are now in progress for a yearly startup awards starting in 2017.
 
The signposting facility is a project being planned by the Business and Enterprise Workstream, scheduled for launch at the ‘Start Your Business 2017’ event.
