Whether it’s an idea, an international hi tech venture, a social enterprise or a consultancy, the following directory of short case studies will provide you with inspiration. The case studies are from ‘FlyingStart’ a UK-based programme set up to support university graduates, realise their business ambitions. http://flyingstartonline.com/casestudies
NZ is often admired for being one of the easiest countries in the world in which to set up a new business. We don’t have business start-up programmes targeted at graduates but there are training, mentoring and financial support schemes available for new businesses and those with a business idea. The government is currently reviewing the level and distribution of funding for such programmes with information on schemes that will be funded available from August. If you can’t wait to get started, try the free, on-line, practical business training modules available at http://www.business.govt.nz/tools-and-templates/online-training/
Here are three websites to check in the next few weeks when new business support funding is released.
