The FasTRACK to Business Success is a trail blazing programme, designed and created by WBS that is proven to directly engage with and bring you closer to your community.
‘ Businesses thrive when communities prosper’
This FasTRACK Start-up Business programme is designed to make a business vision become a reality . This programme gives each participant the opportunity to learn the key principles of business that will inspire and encourage positive action.
No two sessions are the same; the participants will learn from experienced business owners/experts and be introduced to local businesses and support organisations.
At the end of the course the participant will understand the basic principles needed in business to succeed. They will receive practical tools and links to further support and advice. Whats-more, each participant will have identified their main business support needs which they will ‘pitch’ to a Support Panel of Business Experts, who are keen to help them take their next steps.
-In the idea/start-up stage
-Ideally trading for less than 2 years
-Running an existing business and looking to increase enterprise skills that will help develop their business
-That may have pivoted during COVID-19 and need support to think about the future of the business
“I cannot praise the Fast Track programme highly enough. I wanted to start my own business and didn’t know where to begin. I was daunted and about to give up. The speakers and panellists were so encouraging and knowledgeable. The subsequent mentoring has kept me going when my confidence was dwindling. The support network puts me in touch instantly with people who can help. I don’t feel alone anymore.”
