Brief explanation of your project

If you have an idea that you want to develop into a business, we can help you get started and improve your chance of success.

You can get a range of free services from Centre for Business fully funded by the Welsh Government to help you start and grow your business.

Where is it available?

To people throughout Torfaen. We have an office based at New Inn.

Who is it for?

Available to anyone who is looking to start their own business or who is interested in finding out more about what it means to be self-employed.

What can it offer?

Start up Workshops

These are highly interactive sessions where you begin to think about crucial questions including:

  • how to start a business
  • business incorporation (different types or forms)
  • how to do conduct market research for a start up
  • how to market a small business
  • how to manage business finance

Face to face advice from business professionals

One size does not fit all! Business ideas come in all shapes. Your idea may be an online start up business, a charity, a social enterprise, or construction company. Each will have different requirements and qualify for different forms of support. Face to face sessions allow our consultants to find solutions that are:

  • Relevant to your business – we ensure you are offered the most relevant advice for your business and that you are aware of all the support available to businesses in your sector.
  • Relevant to you – Depending on your personal circumstance your business may access funding and extra support under various government grants or schemes (Young people, graduate schemes)

Why is the scheme important?

Although times are tough, more and more people are looking to start their own business. Starting your own business in a recession can have its advantages – in fact some of the biggest, most successful businesses were started in a recession.

At this stage you may be wondering

  • How to start a business?
  • How to write a business plan?
  • How to get funding for a business startup?
  • Where to find government grants or loans for startups in Wales?

We have a network of professionals that can provide help and advice to get your venture off the ground.
