University launches funded support package for young businesses

Published: 26/03/2018

Ambitious young businesses across the region are being encouraged to tap into a new package of support available from the University of Bradford.

The University of Bradford Young Business Pathway offers a wrap-around service which includes specialist advice, one to one support, action learning and workshops on key topics such as sales, finance, marketing and employment law.

Places are available free of charge to eligible pre-start, new and young firms in the Leeds City Region through AD:VENTURE, an ERDF funded £12.3m programme for businesses with strong potential for growth.

Professor Zahir Irani - Dean of the Faculty of Management and Law at the University of Bradford commented,

“This is an exciting and highly practical package of support, designed to upskill young businesses in aspects of business essential for growth.”

“We welcome applications from pre-starts, sole traders, partnerships and businesses with less than three years trading experience from anywhere in the BD postcode area, as well as young buisnesses based further afield in West and Noth Yorkshire.”, he added.

The Pathway begins with a diagnostic session to identify the specific requirements of each business, before delivering a tailored package of support.

Regular small group sessions are delivered by a team of business growth specialists at the University’s School of Management on the outskirts of the city.
