Time5:00pm - 7:00pm Date6 March 2017 LocationWandsworth Civic Suite

What are the advantages of starting a business in mid-life? Come and explore your options with Hilary Farnworth.

Did you know that businesses started by people over 50 are said to have a 70% chance of surviving their first five years - compared with only a 28% survival rate for businesses started by people younger? Source of statistic PRIME (Prince's Initiative for Mature Enterprise).

Find out if you can turn your weekend hobby into an extra income stream, put your lump sum into a great business idea or even employ others. Hilary takes you through key planning concepts and introduces ways you can make the journey into successful self-employment.

This workshop will cover a range of topics, such as the benefits of starting a business in later life and how to create a business idea. It will also help you decide if becoming self-employed is the right option for you.


So if you’re over 40 and think it’s too late to go it alone, think again. Your years of life and work experience can stand you in excellent stead for self employment.
