A LITTLEPORT venue will host a series of business workshops for budding entrepreneurs.

The workshops at E-space North, on Wisbech Road, will be aimed at individuals thinking about starting a business or have recently set themselves up in business.

They will be run by the Government-funded Business Link East.

Darren Hill, economic development officer at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: "E-space North has a strong track record of providing business support services to local businesses.

"By hosting the Business Link seminars at the centre, delegates can see the facilities that are available for anybody looking for business premises without wanting to commit to a long-term lease arrangement."

Other workshops being held at the centre and run by Business Link include business planning, marketing, small business regulations, and planning and developing a website - many of which are offered free of charge.

Simon Crosland, enterprise awareness champion for Business Link in the East of England, said: "The new Business Link events programme will provide people with the tools they need to gain a competitive edge for their business and help deliver measurable improvements to their bottom line.

"E-space North provides an excellent venue for these sessions with its large and well-equipped conference room, on-site catering and parking facilities."

E-space North is an office business centre owned and managed by East Cambridgeshire District Council.

The half-day workshops will be held on November 6, 19 and 27, December 12, January 15, February 13 and March 14.
