Kick-start your business in 2015

By Thomas Costello - January 14, 2015

Did you know that one in ten domestic properties in the UK is now home to a business and 2.9m “homepreneurs” are contributing £300bn to the British economy?

Almost everyone has had a business idea come to them in some way or another. It may be simple or it may be complex but for many this moment of inspiration too often passes. For many a perceived lack of time, lack of resource or even knowing what to do next are the main reasons for this drop-off.

It is for this reason that 123-reg has partnered with Enterprise Nation, the UK’s largest entrepreneurial community, to deliver a monthly series of events aimed at helping businesses bring their idea to life and to also help businesses who are already on their start-up journey. So if you are looking for advice, support and inspiration, our monthly event series is for you.

The events are completely free and will take place at Enterprise Nation’s Somerset House HQ. Each month we will speak alongside another inspirational speaker to help you turbo charge your online business, with experts in digital marketing.

Here is what is coming up in the first half of 2015:
