Start-Up Academy 2020 has launched!

Is it lonely running your business?
Are there some areas you need help with?

The Surrey Chambers of Commerce, supported by projectfive and Greatest Hits Radio, are delighted to bring
you our Start-Up Academy. By becoming a member of the Academy you can work alongside your peer
group and grow your business. By utilising the expertise of our members, we can ensure that you will
get the best advice and resources needed to develop your business and increase your network.

The Academy will take place once a month from the start date, followed by a graduation ceremony. Key areas of business will be covered in depth, with an informative talk for the first half of the day, followed by an interactive session in the afternoon. Running from 10am – 1.30pm, you will be offered the chance to work remotely in projectfive’s office space – a great opportunity to continue getting to know your fellow cohort members and expand your network.
