Advisory Service for businesses and the creative industries.

Enterprise First

Winchester City Council and Enterprise First are providing a new business support service to offer help, advice, networking, training and mentoring opportunities to start ups and existing businesses.

This programme will provide the creative community with a range of support services that will enable them to access finance, have a meeting with a business adviser and network with their peers. The aim is to remove barriers to businesses through a combination of workshops, roundtables and focus groups. The service is free to Winchester based organisations.
