I have a great business idea

great business idea

Congratulations! Having a great idea is a good starting point, though not always essential, so don’t worry if it needs some refining yet.

We will ensure you have the support you need to turn that idea into a fruitful new business. You can either attend our weekly sessions, which guide you through the practicalities of starting up your own business, or alternatively if you find it difficult to attend our sessions, you can gain free access to Outset Online, our online-learning programme.

Gemma Machin

I wanted to create something unique and exciting for Cornwall’s cat owners, and with the help and support of Outset, I’ve achieved exactly that.

Having completed the programme and secured the funding she needed, Gemma could finally give the go ahead for work to start on building her new purpose-built facility and once finished, launched Meadow Cat Hotel in May 2014.
