How we help business owners

How we help business owners

On this page you'll learn...

  • What we do for business owners
  • How we tailor our events to North Yorkshire and East Riding

Whether you’re a sole trader or part of a family business, part-time or full-time, we can help. Are you thinking about taking the plunge and starting your own business? Then we can help turn your ideas into reality.


We love social media and the web. But nothing beats a face-to-face chat. This is why you’ll find us out and about, tracking down little-known resources. We meet up with key partners to understand what support they can offer. Our Popup Business Cafes are just one type of event we host to get people talking.

As our patch is quite rural, travelling times can really cut into your day. So we try to focus on what’s available locally. Plus this website offers advice from anywhere with an internet connection.

Advice is only a click away

Are you looking for a local networking event that won’t break the bank? Do you want a business advisor with a great track record? Maybe you just want to read the latest tips about social media? This website is packed with insightful articles, events and a list of trusted experts in North Yorkshire and East Riding.

Joining up the dots

We work with partner organisations to make finding impartial, useful business support simpler. We spot duplications or gaps and suggest new events or courses that will help business owners.
