Enterprise Nation is set to host a local event for start-up entrepreneurs at Shrewsbury College as part of a UK wide show with audiences of thousands up and down the country.

StartUp 2016 is a free event with 300 tickets available for students and budding entrepreneurs of all ages from Telford & Shropshire to help them start the New Year in entrepreneurial style.

There will be keynote presentations by local entrepreneurs, information on accelerator schemes, Twitter training, advice on overseas trading, start-up finance, free website design and ‘Hot Seats’ available for attendees to gain professional development specific to their business at the event.

Officially launched by The Mayor of Shrewsbury, StartUp 2016 opens the doors of Clayton Hall in Shrewsbury College at 11am on Saturday January 16th

Attendees will be able to share in the success and gain start-up advice from local business founders who have their ventures based in both Telford & Shropshire and the College students will discover that becoming an entrepreneur is now the low-risk career choice with the UK economy moving fast towards a large part of the workforce being self-employed.

Small businesses make up 95% of all businesses in this country with 2016 predicted to be a record-breaking year for new start-ups as people take advantage of increasing broadband access, low start-up costs and the vast amount of help for start-ups via Enterprise Nation.

Enterprise Nation provides annual business support membership for small business owners and for delegates at STARTUP 2016 there is a half price offer at£15 which will buy a full year of benefits worth over £1000.

Fay Easton, Regional Champion for Enterprise Nation said:

"This county has the fastest growing numbers of start-ups in the region and we’re promoting entrepreneurship and the concept of ‘making your own job’ and ‘being your own boss’ at the start of this boom year to provide inspiration & information and enable people to launch their new businesses with the benefit of great advice, new contacts and access to the invaluable help at Enterprise Nation"
