As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week from Monday 13th November to Sunday 19th November, Building Business – which specialises in supporting entrepreneurs and start-ups through advice, mentoring and training – is holding two free drop-in advice sessions in Corby and Northampton.


Organised by Annie Hawkins, Project Coordinator at Building Business, the sessions will run for four hours each and allow those who are out of work but considering setting up their own business, a chance to access some expert advice one-to-one and receive guidance on how to proceed with their ideas and plans.


Details of the drop-in sessions are as follows:

Corby Job Centre
Wednesday 15th November
11am – 3pm

Northamptonshire Central Library, Northampton
Friday 17th November
10am – 2pm

Annie said: “Global Entrepreneurship Week is now in its 10th year and will see 35,000 different events take place simultaneously across 125 countries. The whole idea behind the week is to bring together the start-up community, encourage mentoring and drive those who may be on the cusp of becoming an entrepreneur to take action and make it happen. All of these things are exactly what Building Business is all about and we wanted to do something and take part.”


The free-to-access sessions will be provided as part of the Building Better Opportunities project, an initiative that is European Social Fund (ESF) and lottery-funded and sees several expert partners, including Building Business, work with individuals to get them back to work, into self-employment or on their way to establishing their own business.
