Worcestershire based businesses, who are in the first four years of trading, can get free help from Business & IP Centre Worcestershire (BIPC) to whip their business plans into shape.

BIPC Worcestershire provides free and accessible business support through Worcestershire Libraries. It’s current ‘Reset. Restart’ programme is specifically designed to help young and start-up businesses adapt and recover from the impact of Covid.

A new 4-step programme of interactive webinars will introduce the ‘Business Model Canvas’ concept and provide practical solutions to help them gain the stability and flexibility their business needs to survive the current economic climate.

Participants who sign up to the programme will commit to attending four interactive webinars that cover business plan concepts, marketing, and finance.

They will also receive two hours of free 1:1 mentoring from a dedicated business coach who will help them develop the vision and motivation they need to rebuild their business in a post-pandemic environment.

Hannah Perrott, Assistant Director for Communities, said: “So many businesses across Worcestershire have been affected by Covid and it’s vital that they are able to get the help and support they need to adapt and recover. The Reset. Restart programme from BIPC Worcestershire is part of a wider package of support available from Worcestershire County Council and the library service. It is free and accessible with webinars and tailored 1:1 mentoring sessions to help young businesses through such difficult times.”

The 4-step programme of interactive webinars will launch on 23 March. To register, book a place on the first webinar ‘Turning good ideas into good business – Introduction to the Business Model Canvas’ via the Business and IP Centre Worcestershire eventbrite page –
