Outset wins top award for enterprise support and job creation in Europe –
Welcome to Outset Norfolk
Perhaps you’ve reached a crossroads in your life and have been thinking about working for yourself. Or maybe you’ve been made redundant? Or simply always had a dream about running your own business? Whatever your background or circumstances, Outset can help you learn all the skills, confidence and knowledge you need to make it a reality.
In our first 18 months, we supported nearly 1000 people from across Norfolk, generating around £1.5 million worth of value to the Norfolk economy! Collectively, our UK Outsetters have created over 4,300 new businesses and 4,800 new jobs across the UK.
Our mentors have been a fantastic resource to these new businesses, and in Norfolk, we’ve had over 4,500 mentoring hours donated from all sorts of business people, from corner shops and sole traders, to professional managers and accountants.
They bring a fresh perspective, a wealth of experience, knowledge of what it’s like to work for yourself, and a willingness and enthusiasm to help unlock that potential! And they say that they get a huge amount of satisfaction too – so if you would like to help others get started on the enterprise journey, please donate a few hours into our time bank.
Together, we have – and will continue to – make things happen, creating a lasting entrepreneurial legacy of thriving businesses for Norfolk and UK plc.
