Startups battle to invest in free business advice round


CASH investing is up for grabs through a business hub offering free business development sessions to ambitious start-ups and entrepreneurs.

Business experts are joining forces with Hwb Menter/Enterprise Hub @M-SParc to share their knowledge, advice and experience with attendees across Conwy County.

The Miwtini program will be held in Colwyn Bay for two weeks starting Monday June 13, with workshops on a range of topics including web design, public relations, marketing and customer service.

Entrants will then be able to pitch their investment business ideas – £3,000 for the winner and £2,000 for a runner-up through the UK Community Renewal Fund.

2021 has seen a 14% increase in the number of start-ups launched in the UK, with many people deciding to pursue a new career or start a business due to the pandemic.

Enterprise Hub Manager Sara Roberts said she wants to help people start their journey to business success.

“Miwtini is about opportunity, giving entrepreneurs and anyone with the spark of an idea the platform to bring it to life,” she added.

“We have fantastic guest speakers who know what it takes to start a business and make it a success, all the different facets of getting your name out there and managing future challenges.

“We have already had positive feedback and a lot of interest, so I encourage people to contact us and sign up for what will be a very interesting and valuable fully funded program.”

This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund and takes place over six in-person sessions at the M-SParc #OnTour satellite hub on Abergele Road, Colwyn Bay.

Speakers include Denbigh-based ‘Sales Geek’ Aaron Sussex; Martin Williams, director of Radar PR in St Asaph, and Teresa Carnall, founder of TBC Marketing in Colwyn Bay.

Anna Openshaw, Senior Project Officer for Miwtini, believes partnering with leaders in multiple fields will bring experience and insight to the agenda.

“It will be great to see like-minded people come together with their ideas to share best practices and learn from industry experts,” Anna said.

“For those worried about what’s next for their business, pitfalls and questions about how to overcome obstacles to success – especially given the challenges of Covid-19 – this is the perfect place to find solutions.
