Don't go it alone - we can support you
We know first-hand how challenging starting up a business can be. Feeling on your own, uncertain of what to do first, with no plan in place it can feel overwhelming.
We also know how rewarding it can be when you get it right from the outset, which is why we offer a range of free fully funded* business support to help get your new venture up and running.
Here at Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber Of Commerce as part of the Start-Up Programme we offer a blend of FREE workshops and 1:1 business coaching and mentoring to accelerate your business growth.
This business support is part funded by the UK Government as part of the UK Shared Prosperity Funding (via Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Rugby Borough Council, North Warwickshire Borough Council and Warwick District Council). Funding is also provided by Warwickshire County Council and Stratford District Council.
