Rachel Craig from local city centre business Ruche Marketing came to the workshops in Central Library:
“After deciding to set up a creative content agency in Manchester, specialising in legal marketing, we were unsure of where to start with the business set up.
We found the Build a Business course online and had no idea whether it would be of benefit to us, but it most definitely was. The first part of the course, provided information on the range of research tools & databases provided by the library, and how to access them.
The second part of the course, “Intellectual Property – Protect Your Assets” surprised us. As a service-based business, we didn’t think we had much intellectual property to protect. We most definitely were wrong! During the session we discovered we had a number of assets and intellectual property to protect, things that we’d never even thought of. We also got much needed advice on how to legally set up our business and the appropriate business structure for us.
What was really helpful about attending all three of these courses was meeting other entrepreneurs in a similar position as us. We were all able to share stories and insight into what we’d learned so far.
Overall, the course was extremely valuable, and we would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of starting their own business.”
