Princess Trust Business Plan
The Prince’s Trust can help you start-up your own business.
The Trust is a charitable organisation which offers a range of start-up services and finance to 18-30 year olds who are unemployed and want to start-up their own business but cannot raise all the finance they need from anywhere else.
Since 1983 we have supported over 60,000 young people start-up their own businesses.
The Enterprise Programme helps people to explore and test their business ideas, write business plans and start their own businesses or achieve alternative goals in education, training or work.
"Early on, I attended The Prince's Trust's four-day business enterprise start-up course in Bristol, which looked at marketing and finance, sales and cash flow forecasting, and the legal aspects of running a business.
I also export my products to New Zealand." "Previously, I'd completed an arts foundation course at the Falmouth College of Art and Design and then graduated from the Arts Institute in Bournemouth with a BA Hons in Illustration in 2005.
The Prince’s Trust is another great organisation for small businesses.
With over 40 years of experience, they have lots of information which will be useful, whatever the size of your business.
The fact that I could also get a grant and loan certainly helped." "I had to go in front of a -style panel with my business plan, and the panel members interviewed me about my business ideas.
Later, I was awarded a grant and loan to help pay for initial business start-up tasks such as developing a website and exhibiting at my first trade show.
