BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES

Every One Every Day will be running 4 - 6 Business Development Programmes each year. These will be running on a few specialist themes based on the interests expressed by people in Barking and Dagenham.

The borough already has one of London’s highest concentrations of businesses making and repairing products, from exclusive leather goods to sliced bread, from diesel fuel caps to jam.

The programmes will be part-time to allow for people with existing commitments to participate. They will be 6 - 10 weeks long and be an intensive development process to get ideas and products to market testing stage, within the borough or elsewhere, wherever the best market for individual products or services might be.  

We are particularly interested in growing local businesses that encourage community ownership and benefits the community. Businesses might take many different forms that will include a mixture of Co-operatives, Community Interest Companies, Limited Companies, self-employed micro businesses or Community Businesses.

Please pop in to one of the shops or send us an email to discuss ideas.
