Official launch for Colchester Enterprise Hub
3:23pm Friday 4th October 2013 in News
A NEW project aimed at helping young would-be businessmen and women get started in Colchester has been officially unveiled.
The Colchester Enterprise Hub opened its doors at the Weston Homes Community Stadium to local entrepreneurs, potential students and supporters at a launch last week.
It aims to replicate the success of the Ipswich-based Eastern Enterprise Hub, which has helped set up 71 businesses, create 740 jobs and add £22 million to the local economy in the last two years.
Anyone with a business idea can apply for a place on a 20-week programme teaching accountancy, plannnig, sales techniques, presentation and more.
They will be helped by successful business leaders from the area, who could also prove useful contacts in the future.
