PopUp Business School to start one hundred new businesses in Wigan Borough
Revolutionary start-up training company, PopUp Business School, aims to kick-start over one hundred new businesses in Wigan Borough.
The PopUp Business School has teamed up with Wigan Council to offer people the opportunity to start up their own business, regardless of whether they have experience or money to do it.
The free, two-week course will start on 1st October and will be hosted at The Galleries in Wigan town centre. Each day will focus on different topics from taxing and payroll to finding customers using social media.
The course is open to anyone who has a hobby or an idea they would like to develop and to start-up companies who need some guidance and support getting off their feet.
Councillor David Molyneux, leader of Wigan Council said: “PopUp Business School offer invaluable advice, guidance and support to local people who have ambitions of working for themselves but may not know where to start.
“As outlined in The Deal for Business, we are committed to helping the local economy grow and providing opportunities people to develop their skills.
“Arranging this course with PopUp Business School is a fantastic way for us to demonstrate that commitment and we anticipate a high take-up in places. We look forward to seeing the breadth and range of ideas brought to the table and watching them be transformed into business ideas.”
Since 2011, PopUp Business School has been travelling around the United Kingdom teaching aspiring entrepreneurs how to start their own businesses. Unlike other enterprise support companies, their advice is the polar opposite of the status quo.
They don’t believe in business plans, financial projections or loans. Instead they get their students starting off with sales and proving a demand in their businesses first.
Liam Sibley from the PopUp Business School said: “There’s nothing quite like helping people reach their milestones, and start a new journey with their business. Whether it’s a first sale, a lightbulb moment or publishing a shiny new website they’ve built. It’s truly inspiring, and I can’t wait to bring this to Wigan.”
At a recent event in Reading, The PopUp Business School helped start over one hundred and twenty businesses. Eighty nine percent of which are still trading today – eighteen months after the course finished.
