Starting your own business

Owning your own business can be very rewarding and it is fast becoming people's first choice when facing redundancy or returning to work.

Becoming an entrepreneur requires the right ideas, the right skills and the determination.  It can be an amazing challenge and requires careful planning, research and preparation.

There is a thriving community of entrepreneurs in Havering and we want to nurture this by providing you with the right support, at the right time, for free.
