Welcome to Outset Torbay!

Could you be your own boss? Now there’s an idea.

If you’re interested in exploring whether your ideas can grow into a great business then Outset can help!

Our programme is designed to help you:

  • Develop your ideas
  • Build your confidence and skills
  • Learn to run your own business

We know how daunting the idea of working for yourself and managing your own business can be. Our goal is not to baffle you with jargon, but rather to ensure that you have all the support you need for every stage of your journey, from developing the first stages of your idea through to planning and launching your business, and beyond. Plus, our Outset Finance service is a government approved Start Up Loans provider and can help you get money for your new business.

Current funding:
Like all other EU funded projects, our current co financed provision from the European Regional Development Fund ended on 30 June. This means that for the next few months, we’re not able to offer our workshops or other on-the-ground support, although we are working hard to secure new funding when it becomes available later in the year, and are hopeful that we’ll be back in the Autumn. Find out more about our current funding situation.

The good news is that thanks to The Outset Foundation, we are able to continue to offering all residents of Torbay 12-months free access to our interactive online learning tool, Outset Online, which gives you all the support, knowledge and tools you need to start and sustain your business – whenever or wherever you need.
