With record numbers of people starting businesses whilst holding down a job, finding the time to absorb all the information needed to hit the ground running can be one of the most challenging hurdles.
Online small business network Enterprise Nation has come up with a solution – the Enterprise Nation Weekend.
The weekend break cleverly combines beautiful scenery, great food and like-minded company, with an intensive two-day session that will give new businesses a healthy kick start.
The first of the series is set to be held at the Mytton and Mermaid country house hotel in rural Shropshire on January 18 and 19 2014. The weekend will include the chance to tap into expert business minds over dinner, make the most of peer-to-peer learning over lunch and inject clear thinking into a life-changing idea.
Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones said: "Time is the most precious commodity for busy people – especially entrepreneurs. Often something has to give – the business or the pleasure. For most of the entrepreneurs I know, it's the latter.
"We thought that by combining the two, it would give people the chance to take advantage of some beautiful British countryside that's literally on their doorstep whilst having access to experts and step-by-step guidance.
"This is aimed at people who are looking to start a business now that they can build on into the future."
The two-day retreat will take entrepreneurs from finessing their idea and researching the market to social
media and finance. In addition delegates can expect to come out with tangible progress towards their goal including individual plans offering a more polished idea, price points, routes to market and a personal elevator pitch.
The second day will cover finance summaries, cash flow and fundraising which will lead to individual step-by-step growth plans for individual businesses to follow.
The event will be hosted by Emma.
