What is Start Up West Yorkshire?

Start Up West Yorkshire is a new initiative, led by the Mayor of West Yorkshire, and supported by local councils, offering resources to help new businesses succeed, from workshops and seminars to one-to-one support.

What can I expect?

The programme is designed to help those with an idea for a new business or support growth for existing businesses under three years old.

Anyone can drop-in at the free events and meet expert advisors who can support and guide you through your business journey. There’s also the opportunity to hear from local start-up businesses, who will share their experience and business journey.

There’s also the chance to have a free, professional profile picture taken at the event which could be used on social media or business website.

Everyone is welcome, whether you have a seed of an idea, to a fully formed business plan or growth ambitions. The advice is impartial and free and will cover everything you need to get started or to take existing businesses to the next level.
