Start-Up Statistics July 2012

It wasn’t just the Olympics that opened in July 2012, we are pleased to announce that right here in North Somerset, we assisted 13 new start-up businesses with their own ‘opening ceremonies’. This also meant that 14 new jobs were created, with the prospect of more for the future. We wish them every success now they’re off the starting blocks!

July also saw 16 people attend our free Business Start-Up Workshop which ran for 3 days so we continue to see an extremely high level of interest in people wanting to ‘become their own boss’. Check the exact date of the next workshop here on the events calendar.

We’re also delighted to take this opportunity to highlight the fact that, of the 8 new businesses we supported as they started trading 12 months ago, 7 have reached their 1st anniversary. Similarly we celebrate the success of the 6 businesses that reached the 3rd  annivesary of trading in July this year, from a total of eight new start-ups 3 years ago. Here’s to their continued success!

We think this is not only testimony to the hard work and dedication of those business owners and staff, but also highlights the importance of having a good support network in place to call upon should the need arise.

NSEA is proud of these figures and proud of our place in the community of North Somerset. We’re also proud of our ability to be able to provide on-going support and advice to new and prospective business owners, not just for one meeting or session or course but in a way that adds value over a sustained period of time. In fact, we’re pleased to say a great number of our relationships continue for many years.

If you’ve been inspired to start-up a new business and think we can give you assistance, then please contact us to see what we can help you achieve.
