IF YOU ARE A BURY BASED BUSINESS UNDER 2 YEARS OLD AND WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT HOW THE BUSINESS ACADEMY CAN HELP YOU PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.
Statistics show that 40% of start-up businesses fail within their first year, 70% of start-ups don't make it to their 5th year of business and only 9% see success with ten or more years under their belt. The Made in Bury Business Academy was launched with a goal in mind to improve the survival rates of local start-up businesses.
From individuals who have no formal business background to larger businesses which are just branching out to work independently, the Made in Bury Business Academy welcomes a huge range of businesses, providing opportunities to learn a wide range of skills, share experiences and share best practice.
Each module in the Business Academy is designed to educate and inform start-ups about the potential obstacles which can be detrimental to growth, how to prepare for them and how to make the most of the numerous positive opportunities and support facilities which are available to ensure success.
With prolific guest speakers the Made in Bury Business Academy has seen extraordinary success over the past 5 years, and if you are a start-up business who would like to find out about the 2022 Business Academy, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
This ladies-only business networking organisation is one of the first of its kind. The Brunch Club is all about women 'getting together, supporting each other, engaging and enjoy themselves.'
The idea behind the Brunch Club came from Debi Fellone from Made In Bury and Kate Holt from Bury BusinessLodge. These ladies wanted to create a networking group which is exclusive, unique and that doesn't include men!
As a women's only business community, the Brunch Club has a very different dynamic to other networking groups. It is about listening, sharing and getting to know each other.
"After many years of avoiding women’s only networking I tried it and loved it and wanted to bring a new relaxed networking club to Bury. So after a chat with the ladies at Bury BusinessLodge, the Brunch Club was born. Our launch meeting was on the 23rd May 2014 and I’m delighted to say that the group is growing. Our meetings are casual, fun and supportive."
The Brunch Club is all about success. The five objectives of this fantastic networking community are:
Brunch Club Events
The Brunch Club meetings take place at Bury BusinessLodge, Europa House, and are designed to be informal, fun and supportive. They are about building connections, making new friends and having a great time. This is why the Brunch Club will feature ice-breakers and games; introducing you to other members in a relaxed environment.
Of course, networking can work up an appetite. Tea and coffee will be available and a tasty brunch will be served.
