People from Hull and East Yorkshire who have a vision for a new enterprise are being invited to come and make their dreams into reality.
It is estimated that one person in every five has an idea for a product or service which could be translated into a viable business proposition. The problem is that people’s natural apprehensiveness and reticence leads them to shy away from making positive moves to bring it into being. Now a new service is being introduced to root out the innovators and provide them with all the help and encouragement they need to turn their ideas into real-life business ventures.
An event is taking place at The Octagon Centre, Hull at 10.30am on Friday 11 May to launch the Yorkshire Enterprise Club. Lord Haskins of Skidby will be announcing this groundbreaking new service for people for whom starting a business – either now or in the future – is a distinct possibility.
The YEC’s Chairman, Gordon Millward, explains:
‘The Yorkshire Enterprise Club represents a pioneering new partnership with the many established public- and private-sector organisations across Yorkshire that already support the establishment and growth of start-up businesses.
‘The UK’s economic survival depends on the abilities of a new generation of entrepreneurs to turn their ideas into commercial success. There is no plan B for the UK economy: we simply need more people to embark on the enterprise journey to create the wealth and jobs for future generations. The Yorkshire Enterprise Club will exist to champion the drive for an enterprise economy. It is time to ratchet-up the region’s support for start-up business. Our plan is to challenge and encourage more people to set up new businesses and to support those in the early stages of trading. The Yorkshire Enterprise Club is here to secure Yorkshire’s universal acceptance as the nation’s frontrunner in enterprise development and prove that the region is ripe for investment.
‘In Yorkshire we are blessed with some of the best business start-up training and support organisations available in the UK. We are not setting out in any way to replace or replicate that solid infrastructure; we aim to underpin their efforts and provide support for their services. We will work in collaboration with these organizations to reinforce their impact on the fledgling business community. Our aims will be threefold: to significantly enhance the numbers of individuals setting out on the enterprise journey, to work collaboratively to improve the survival rates of fledgling businesses and to raise the bar in the provision and delivery of enterprise support and training. By identifying early when help and support is needed, intervention will be much simplified and the support mechanisms can be effectively focused on where they are most required.’
Anyone with a business idea or in the early stages of trading is invited to attend the launch event at the Octagon Centre on Friday 11 May, commencing at 10.30am and concluding with a buffet lunch at 1.00pm. There will be opportunities to network and meet with many of the support organisations. Attendance is free, but booking is essential. To book, ring the YEC office on 0114 261 7132 or email email@example.com.
