Mid & East Antrim Borough Council will host a virtual ‘Start a Business’ workshop on Tuesday 25th August 2020 (7pm) as they urge local entrepreneurs to take that first step to starting their own business with the support of the Go For It programme.

This project is part funded by Invest Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund under the Investment for Growth & Jobs Northern Ireland (2014-2020) Programme.

The one hour ‘Start a Business’ virtual workshop will provide local people with an opportunity to receive top tips and advice from experienced entrepreneurs who took the decision to start their own business.

Attendees will also have the chance to speak to a business advisor about their business idea and how the Go For It Programme can help them through the business start-up process.

Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, Councillor Peter Johnson, said: ‘Supporting people to start and grow their own business is a key priority for Council so I’m very pleased to support this initiative which will benefit anybody who is considering working for themselves’.

Ballymena Business Centre, Carrick Enterprise and LEDCOM deliver the Go For It programme in the Mid and East Antrim Borough Council area.
