Starting My Business

Based at the Digital Media Centre the Launchpad service provides a dedicated team who will support anyone in Barnsley who is looking to start a business, no matter what stage their idea or business is at.

  • A modular start-up workshop service covering all key topics, with modules split across various days/times allowing participants to access them at times to suit
  • A dedicated area within the DMC (Enterprise Hub) allowing clients to study, access data and network
  • A selection of workshops and events at various times covering key topics
  • Clinics staffed by business advisors and key experts where clients can obtain one to one bespoke support
  • Networking events to share experiences and obtain peer support
  • Data available that provides answers to commonly asked questions with access to Business Planning tools and links to key websites and other important information
  • The opportunity to inter-trade between clients
  • A full time employed Business Advisor to work with the companies on the programme and those that are in the early start stages
