The event was aimed at budding entrepreneurs, people with who looking at potentially starting self employment and people who are already in business and looking to expand or who need extra support.
There was much marketing activity in the lead up of the event though partners, TWITTER and Facebook. This resulted in 216 people attending on the day.
In addition to the 13 providers who attended, we had 4 individual representatives from local businesses in Neath who were on hand to act as advocates and mentors, and on the day there were motivational sessions from Carolyn Parry the winner of the PRIME Cymru Business Start Up award in 2016.
Known outcomes recorded in Neath Jobcentre so far have shown 46 new registered businesses following the event, which is excellent news for the individuals and wider economy in Neath.
