Start Up Support Showcase event

The Marches Growth Hub Telford is running the event in partnership with the Shropshire Chamber and is running on 13th July between 9am and 12 noon at AFC Telford United Football Club specifically for;


  1. Individuals wanting to start a business, they have a business idea (pre-starts)
  2. Businesses that have just started trading or on the cusp of trading.
  3. New businesses – up to 2 years old
  4. New social enterprise start ups


The event is to engage the above identified audience and bring together organisations that will be able to support them on their business journey – having a focus on funding but also open to other support programmes and organisations.


As a result of attending the event the outcome will be that people will have a better awareness and understanding of the products and services available to them and how to access them.


There will be a session from Shropshire based business consultants; Good2Great and will be a call to action to highlight the main things that a business needs to have in place e.g business plan and financial management.


We have secured Joe Lockley Director of Brightstar Boxing Academy and Tim Luft of Woote Ltd to speak about their experiences of setting up and running a successful business – as a motivational and aspirational speech.
