Hundreds to take part in biggest start-up Saturday event


Small business support group Enterprise Nation has teamed up with the British Library to host the day-long Biggest Ever StartUp Saturday event on November 19 which will see hundreds flock to London on what’s set to be a mammoth start-up festival.

The supersized class will be hosted by best-selling author and small business expert Emma Jones MBE, founder of Enterprise Nation, co-founder of national enterprise campaign StartUp Britain and the government’s SME Crown Representative.

The day will offer a step-by-step guide to getting started, plus practical tips from a series of experts in marketing, sales, finance and PR. There will also be a panel discussion from businesses that have emerged from the event run in previous years.

Jones said: “The Biggest StartUp Saturday is about giving people looking to set up a business, clear advice as they set out on their journey.

“The sessions aim to help people understand how to develop a globally sustainable business, with a clear vision of where they want to be and how they are going to get there.”

The event is hosted at the British Library’s Conference Centre.  The British Library has a Business & IP Centre, dedicated to helping entrepreneurs to start up and grow their business, and has hosted the sell-out event for the last four years.

In the space of a day attendees will discover all they need to know about starting a business; coming up with an idea, writing a business plan, making sales, creating a home on the web and keeping on top of the books – it will also offer friendly advice for businesses that are already started about how to it to the next level and grow.

It is set to be screened at the recently-opened Enterprise Nation Hub in Barnsley and libraries across the UK.
