What is Enterprise for Success

Enterprise For Success is a new project to encourage new business start-ups and to help young businesses grow and thrive. The programme is funded by partners of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Events

There are events in your area where you can take part in a variety of workshops during which your Blue Orchid adviser will guide you through a range of topics, including what it means to be self-employed and how to plan your business. Once you are trading we also offer support in the form of training and also one to one business advice sessions.

Who are we

We are Blue Orchid, an organisation dedicated to supporting new and existing businesses. We’re a private business ourselves, so we understand what it’s like to build a business from scratch! We work with highly experienced advisers who also run their own businesses, so you can be sure that your personal adviser will empathise with whatever you’re feeling and experiencing.

Is it for me?

Well, if you’ve ever said or thought any of those statements at the top of the page, such as I want to be my own boss, or I’ve got a great idea for a business, or How do I make a living out of my hobby?, then you’re probably ready to explore the possibility of starting your own business. Maybe you’ve been made redundant; perhaps you work part-time; you could be a stay-at-home parent; you might have retired from your job but have too much energy to retire from the workplace; you could have a burning desire to plough your own furrow; you could simply be frustrated in your day-to-day routine; or you could be unemployed / between jobs. If you can devote the time to invest in your own future, then we’ll help you on your way, giving you the practical tools and confidence to succeed.

Make 2017 your best year ever!
