Business start-up support

If you're looking to start your own business, or aiming to change the course of your career, you can take advantage of free advice and guidance from our SNC Enterprise Club.

The SNC Enterprise Club supports and advises local residents on how to start their own business and become self employed.

This free service is confidential and impartial; support includes:

  • Initial evaluation of client and testing of the business proposition
  • Company formation
  • Business plan and cash flow forecasting
  • Market research and marketing
  • Finance and access to finance
  • Licensing (if applicable)

Members of the SNC Enterprise Club also receive coaching and mentoring to ensure they have the best possible chance of succeeding with their idea, proposed product or service.

You can meet a member of the SNC Enterprise Club at the weekly South Northamptonshire Job Club held in Towcester and Brackley on alternating weeks. Come along for one-to-one advice, information on upcoming workshops with business experts on a range of issues that may affect new businesses.

What you need to do to set up depends on your type of business, where you work and whether you take people on to help. Please see setting up your business information on the government website.
