The Start Up Now programme includes four workshops taking place at the council offices in Narborough starting on Monday June 2 and each running from 10am until 3pm.
The workshops offer practical help on self employment topics such as how to build a business plan, understanding finance and cash planning, marketing and how to find customers.
Additionally one to one support from a business adviser will be available to help get enterprises off to a flying start.
Carole Troake, principal economic development officer at Blaby District Council said:
“The Council recognises that setting up a business can be a very exciting yet challenging time and expert advice can really get you started on the right track towards success.”
