The course is based on a live version delivered to more than 2,500 aspiring entrepreneurs and consists of three modules, the basics, marketing and finance. It is a practical and straightforward guide to starting any small business. Importantly, the course will help you decide if being in business is right for you. It has been is designed to give you the tools to start any business before you make commitments. START ANY BUSINESS is constructed in a modular style so that you can dip in and out of sections as you need them and will lead you through the process of producing your own business plan.
