The Business Factory has been a great source of support for us, helping us to prepare fully for the challenges of running our own business.

My plan from day one has been to grow the business and my business adviser has been wonderful at helping me to look at the opportunities to expand in the future. She has really made me consider every aspect of the business, from short-term opportunities to long-term challenges so I feel ready and prepared to take-on the challenges of running my own enterprise.
They offered us the opportunity to attend some fantastic courses which really helped us to position our offering and identified a number of potential business opportunities we should explore. But the best thing they provided us with was the confidence and belief in our idea and that what we hoped to achieve was not beyond reach, just required lots of hard work and effort.
