You don’t need to be on your own when start­ing a busi­ness

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

ON JULY 4, Amer­ica cel­e­brated In­de­pen­dence Day so this is a good time to re­flect on the ben­e­fits of break­ing away from the sta­tus quo.

For many peo­ple, the dream of start­ing their own busi­ness seems a bold move and leaves them to fight their busi­ness bat­tles alone, how­ever, with the right help and sup­port, start­ing a busi­ness from scratch can be ex­tremely re­ward­ing and lib­er­at­ing.

As the En­tre­pre­neur­ial Heart of Bri­tain, Buck­ing­hamshire has so much to of­fer that it would be a shame if those strik­ing out on their own don’t tap into the en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit, knowl­edge­able ad­vice and en­gaged busi­ness com­mu­nity preva­lent in the county to help turn their busi­ness dreams into re­al­ity.

With an econ­omy built on the backs of small busi­nesses, it is vi­tal to nur­ture those busi­nesses. This is es­pe­cially im­por­tant for star­tups, which are vul­ner­a­ble in their early days. It’s a fact that start-up en­trepreneurs who re­ceive busi­ness sup­port in the early days of their com­pany fare bet­ter than those who do not.

Hav­ing said that, I know from ex­pe­ri­ence that reach­ing out for busi­ness sup­port only helps when you know where to go for that sup­port.

Of­ten, would-be en­trepreneurs have no idea who to turn to for start-up ad­vice and this is some­thing that Buck­ing­hamshire Busi­ness First aims to fix. Not only is Buck­ing­hamshire a won­der­ful place to live and work, it is also home to a vast net­work of ad­vice, sup­port and high qual­ity in­fra­struc­ture ready for busi­nesses to take ad­van­tage of.

Buck­ing­hamshire Busi­ness First’s Busi­ness Sup­port Team have the kind of knowl­edge­able ex­pe­ri­ence that can help as­pir­ing en­trepreneurs with busi­ness is­sues of any kind, and they are at our of­fices in Saun­der­ton poised to meet any­one in need of sup­port.

So if you or some­one you know has a busi­ness dream wait­ing to be re­alised, con­tact the Busi­ness Sup­port Team on 01494 568 941 or email mem­ber­ship@bbf.uk.com.
