Be your own Boss!

Published: 27 January 2021

The ‘Be Your Own Boss’ programme is part of the Community Board business start-up initiative, delivered in partnership with Buckinghamshire Business First and funded by Wycombe, North West Chilterns, South West Chilterns, Beeches, and Beaconsfield and Chepping Wye Community Boards.

More businesses start in Buckinghamshire than almost anywhere else in the country, and we are keen to support each of them on their journey.

That’s why, alongside Buckinghamshire Business First, we are offering a start-up business support service ‘Be Your Own Boss’ to residents within our Community Board area of the North West Chilterns.

A two-day workshop – A more in depth session following on from the Enterprise Day including the basics of accountancy, producing a business plan, marketing and sales
A 2 hour one-to-one session - with a Business Adviser.
Advice and guidance from people who have been in the same position as you are now
Networking events to help you make new contacts
