Go for it is the gateway for starting your business

When you are starting a business, it can be normal to feel quite overwhelmed by the sheer number of things you need to do. It is a very exciting, busy time but it can sometimes feel lonely and you might not always know where you can access support and guidance to help you.

Local councils in Northern Ireland have a range of free support and mentoring programmes available to help you navigate your way through starting your business, onto growing your business and making it sustainable.

Go for it is a great place to start. Find out more about what the Go for it programme includes.

Once you complete the Go for it programme you will then be put in contact with your local council’s Economic Development Department who are a fantastic source of knowledge about the further support opportunities, training, mentoring and potential funding streams that exist in your local area.
