Ever wanted to start your own business but don’t know where to begin? Or perhaps you’ve made a start but struggling to overcome some hurdles?

Our new event series ‘Start-up Stories’ enables you to hear from individuals and businesses as they share the experiences and difficulties they have faced themselves.

During the event, you’ll hear from two different speakers as they take us through a brief background of themselves, what inspired them to start their business, how they got to where they are now and their plans for the future. There will also be a chance to ask any questions that could help inspire or motivate you to take the next step to achieve your dreams.
