Starting a business

Running a business requires a variety of skills including financial management, organisational ability, marketing knowledge and an awareness of health and safety and legal issues.

Very few people who set out in business have all of these skills to begin with.  We can help to develop the expertise you will need to help you to be a success.

The Business Enterprise Support Team provides a range of support to help you start your business and important support while the business is growing.

For an initial discussion about what we can offer your business, please contact the Business Enterprise Support Team.

If you live in county borough, you can test drive your business idea in Bargoed at the Taste of Enterprise shop on Hanbury Road.
