Since 1983 PNE has helped and supported thousands of people across the North East in person and on the ground, to start up their own businesses.
We are one of the most successful enterprise agencies across the country (Experts in Enterprise) that not only mentors and trains people to start a business, but also continue to support them for as long as they need us.
Our ethos is not to deliver the theory of running a business - there's loads of people out there who can tell you theoretically this is how it is done - our strengths lie in giving you practical resources to start and run a business that is going to last.
This business course is targeted at those individuals who have a business idea in mind, have been to our FREE one day intensive business course (or something similar) which means they know what a Business Plan is, have conducted a little bit of market research and crucially, are committed to taking their idea to the next step - starting.
In this course we will hear from guest speakers including a Business Accountant and Solicitor who will give you an insight into what you actually need to know, do and not do to run a business.
You will be taught from qualified and experienced teachers and business advisors, they ahve been there done that and got the t-shirt type deliverers who will ensure you leave each session with a smile on your face and a brain full of helpful business knowledge.
The topics we cover include; Marketing both online and offline, registration of your business and what that actually means, gaining and attaining customers, keeping your own accounts, applying for funding or property for your business, insurance and much much more.
Again and please note, this is a practical business course designed for those who are committed to taking their business knowledge and business life to the next level.
We will provide you with all the resources you need in the session including pens and presentations that will also be emailed out after each session.
You will be allocated a business mentor who will be on hand to support you throughout the 4 weeks of this course and beyond if you do go ahead and start up your dream business.
This course is delivered between the hours of 5pm and 7pm at Newcastle City Library every Tuesday (Starting the 30th August 2016) for 6 weeks.
You will be given group tasks within the session and homework will be assigned at the end of every session to ensure your learning 'sinks in' and practically helps you.
