Stage 2 - Business Start Up programme

The second stage of our programme, which you can access via Outset Online, is a more intensive stage that focuses on core business principles that require a little bit more effort to complete. We’ve stepped up the tone and focus here in order to build upon the basic principles we covered in ‘Introduction to Enterprise’

This is where we get down to the nitty-gritty of business planning, including how to structure your company, tax advice, financial spreadsheets and how to price your product or service. By completing the steps included in this stage, you will automatically build yourself a business plan, which you can later print or export as a PDF – something you’ll need if you’re planning on applying for a Start Up Loan or other finance.

‘Business Start Up’ also has eight key steps and gives you access to our bespoke spreadsheet calculator tool, which makes planning your finances so much easier! Key topics covered in this stage include:

  • Business structures
  • Steps to starting your business
  • What’s in a brand?
  • Mission, vision and unique selling points
  • Pricing your product or service
  • Marketing, promotion and communications
  • Sales techniques and closing the deal
  • Social media
  • Costs, value and cash flow
  • The bottom line
