Burngreave will soon have its own Business and Enterprise Champion,
whose role will be to encourage entrepreneurship and provide practical
support and advice to small businesses, sole traders, and local
residents who want to get their own business started.
The new recruit
will head up an innovative initiative, funded by BNDfC, which will
provide practical advice and support to remove the barriers that
prevent residents from taking the risk of starting up in self employment,
and tackle the issues facing the area’s businesses, such as
isolation, lack of focused support from mainstream support agencies,
few business start-ups, and a focus on survival rather than growth.
Creating Enterprise, Supporting Business project will initially
run for two years, helping existing and potential businesses in
the area by providing targeted support, and encouraging other businesses
to consider relocating to Burngreave.
