Free business start-up masterclasses begin in October.

York & North Yorkshire Growth Hub is hosting a series of online sessions covering all the important aspects of establishing and running a successful business in the first 12 months.

Andrew Raby, York & North Yorkshire Growth Hub Manager, said: “Ready to start your own business? Whether you’re working on your first business idea or have recently begun trading, this masterclass is for you. Led by experienced business advisors, these free online sessions are crammed with useful information, covering everything from tools to help research ideas to reviewing the best legal structure and understanding start-up costs and business planning.”

Each masterclass is in four parts, running Monday 12, Tuesday 13, Thursday 15 and Friday 16 October from 9.30am to 12.30pm each day. Sessions are running again between 9 – 13 November. Please note this is only open to individuals and businesses based in York and North Yorkshire.
