Supporting people to create new businesses in South & East Cornwall

The Community Led Local Development (CLLD) Programme in Cornwall is pleased to open a call for projects that will support people to establish their own businesses in South & East Cornwall. Projects can be designed to support people in CLLD target areas provided they do not already run a business. Business creation may be a response to recent job loss, to supplement existing employment or possibly to achieve a longer term aim of transitioning from employment to self-employment. We are keen to hear your ideas. We are seeking projects that raise aspiration in eligible participants and recruit them to the delivery of a min of 12 hours interaction where they will learn how to become enterprise ready. We expect this activity to include the development of thorough understanding about the positives and negatives of running your own business, financial competence, market analysis, business planning, and generally supporting potential entrepreneurs to the point of start-up. Further support for new enterprises may also be incorporated (additional min of 12 hours interaction) to supplement pre-start support for the new entrepreneurs as they take their first steps as a self-employed individual. Applicants should demonstrate their understanding of the South and East Cornwall economic context and where they are linking with local organisations for engagement, support and/or legacy purposes. Evidence of innovative thinking and a clear exit strategy demonstrating the lasting impact of the project, will be required.
