Starting your own business can be an exciting, but also quite a daunting prospect.

Orvia is here to help you succeed!

Starting your own business

We know exactly what it takes to get a new business idea off the ground, and we have mentors who can work alongside you to get you off to a great start!

Over to You!!

A few questions for you to think about: 

  • Do you have a feasible business idea?
  • Are you aware of your customers and how you will reach them?
  • How much will it cost to start and run your business?
  • How much will you charge?
  • How will you stand out from the crowd?
  • Will you register as a sole trader or limited company or social enterprise?

Once you have had a think about these points (and no doubt a few more too!) it is important to explore these areas in more detail and start to commit your ideas and financial considerations to paper in the form of a business plan and financial forecasts.

This process and the various tasks may seem very overwhelming, but this is where we can help you and provide guidance to support you to work through your business plan and financials.

Following an initial in-depth assessment with one of our team we will match you with a mentor, on a one to one basis, to provide that independent sounding board and discuss considerations for your business idea, which you will then commit to paper in the form of a business plan.

Find out more by completing the contact form and a member of our team will be in touch.
