for 20 aspiring entrepreneurs and supported them to understand

the process of starting a business.  We supported individuals to

develop a business plan and consider what skills are required to

start and manage a business.  Within the training workshops each

budding entrepreneur presented their business to their peers and

had the opportunity to test trade at our Enterprise Hub, The Onion

located in Bootle Strand.
