Starting a business in Cornwall? Get support from OutsetCornwall

If you’re looking to start a business in Cornwall, there are lots of – almost bewildering – options for support. The best place to start looking at the options available is the Growth Hub. The Growth Hub will sign-post you on to other various services which can be of help to you in starting, building or relocating your business in Cornwall. The Growth Hub is funded in part by the EU and Cornwall Council to build resilient and sustainable businesses based in one of the worst areas of the deprivation in the UK.

I have been running Clear Mapping Co for nine years (in July 2019) and I wouldn’t have even started without support from OutsetCornwall. However, this personal one-to-one support and up-skilling service has run it’s course and I went to the Grand Finale event in Reduth to catch-up with other entrepreneurs that have benefited from OutsetCornwall over the last decade.

844 Businesses started

1014 jobs created

The types of businesses created vary from Solar panel installers, cake makers, solicitors, widget-makers, sign-makers and yes, me. We heard stories of heart-ache , failures, valour and bravery against all the odds. Every entrepreneur career sculpting new businesses and new opportunities. All with the very human-level support from those at OutsetCornwall.

Currently, OutsetCornwall are looking for new funding, but the programme is being rolled out across the country to support more new entrepreneurs to start their own businesses. Meanwhile, in Cornwall find online support here and hopefully they’ll soon be back to help more new entrepreneurs to start their own business in 2020.
