Grantham University has launched a new forum for people who want to start businesses from scratch.
The new forum, called Granthams Business Accelerator, is intended to provide a platform for people with little to no prior experience to get involved and create a business.
The forum has been created with the support of the Granthans Government, with which the university is a member.
It’s currently only open to students and the general public.
Grantham Business Accelerators aim to encourage people to get on board and start their own businesses, with the aim of encouraging businesses to grow and prosper.
“We’re trying to build a network of people who are in the business of starting a business and they’re going to be able to come together and create the next great business,” says university vice president for research and development, Dr Peter Jones.
“There’s a lot of entrepreneurs who are starting businesses out of desperation and need the help to get going.”
The forum is a part of Granthamen’s Digital Transformation, which aims to accelerate the growth of digital businesses in the city.
In 2017, Granthameen’s research centre hosted a conference called ‘The Digital Revolution: Connecting the Digital Economy’, which featured a panel of industry experts and entrepreneurs.
Grant and grant funding are currently available for businesses to develop a website and start a new business, with applications open until March 20.
