Regenda Homes joined forces with five other North West housing associations to provide valuable business advice to local residents.
More than 20 people who attended the two day Pop Up Business School event at Birkenhead in Wirral said they felt an increase in confidence and the ability to progress their business ideas further.
Pop Up Business School, or PUBS, take a different approach to enterprise support and business start-up, believing that all you need to start a business is an idea, some confidence and a customer.
During the event residents were all given the opportunity to set up a free website, social media accounts and were given a list of contacts through a Facebook support group.
Chris Standish, Regenda Homes’ Regeneration Manager, said: “We are always looking at new ways to help our residents and work in partnerships. The PUBS team were brilliant.”
