Roots and Shoots – Business Start Up Course for Women

November 9 @ 10:00 - 12:30

Roots and Shoots is The Growing Club’s start-up course, for women ready to start a small business.

Roots and Shoots

Roots and Shoots is The Growing Club’s 12-month start-up course for women ready to start a small business.

The purpose of Roots and Shoots is to:

*Take women through a systematic programme of starting a solid, sustainable business.

*Equip participants with the skills to run a sustainable small business

*Ensure systems are in place to make things run as smoothly as possible from day one

*Provide peer support to break the isolation and build confidence

Most small businesses fail in the first two years because the business owner does not have business skills to support their business idea.

Our start-up course addresses that problem to ensure participants have the skills and the support they need to launch and grow a sustainable business.

On completion of the course you will be matched with a mentor, another woman in business, for support and accountability for a further 12-months.

How much does this cost?

This programme is highly subsidised thanks to funding from UKSPF-Lancaster. It is free for women on benefits. Women in Lancaster district will be asked to pay a commitment deposit of £50, which you will get back on completion of the course.

Outside of Lancaster District? You are welcome to join and you will be invited to make a donation based on your household income .
