Business and Arts Advisory Service

Business support service
Networking events available

Winchester City Council is working with Enterprise First on a business support service for organisations located in the Winchester District.  The service will provide one to one business advice, training, networking and mentoring.

The business support service offers help with writing business plans, securing funding or advice regarding expansion.  Funded by Winchester City Council the free service aims to remove the barriers that stop people from starting and growing a business in the District. 

  • Networking

    Businesses who are keen to meet with like minded business owners to share and support the local area are invited to come along to the informal networking. The events are held every month and are free to attend although businesses will need to purchase their own drinks and food, as required.

    The next informal networking event date will be held on Thursday 24 January from 9am to 11am, at Cafe Winchester, 28-29 Saint Thomas Street, Winchester SO23 9HJ. Visit www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/win-cafe-winchester-winchester-informal-networking-tickets-35812956517 to book your place.
