First steps to starting a business

13 May 2020










We are pleased to be partnering with GDST alumna and start-up expert Fleur Emery to offer insights and practical steps into starting your own business.

You have an idea, and are determined to give it a go, but have no idea where to start. Does this sound like you?

This session will tell you everything you need to know about setting up and planning a business from reporting to HMRC and registering with Companies House, to planning a cash flow.
