News: Rotherham entrepreneurs to table business ideas


Rotherham Enterprise Board are set to host their third Tablecloth Enterprise event at Century Business Centre in Manvers on the September 16.

The previous events, which took place at RiDO's business centres, saw fledgling businesses take part in "speed coaching" sessions with successful entrepreneurs.

The events, which are free to attend, are funded by Corus subsidiary UK Steel Enterprise and offer businesses the opportunity to explore their concepts and discuss running a business with experienced entrepreneurs in a relaxed and informal setting.

Discussions and thoughts are captured on a paper tablecloth and by the end of the session businesses will have refined their business ideas and will have a tablecloth full of inspiring notes and ideas to follow up and explore.

The Enterprise Board is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is led by successful business men and women from a wide range of different backgrounds and business sectors. They are using their experience to change the way business support is provided and make it more helpful to Rotherham entrepreneurs.

UK Steel Enterprise's regional manager, Keith Williams, said: "The Enterprise Board events are designed to help early stage and smaller businesses, whilst loan and equity finance of up to £750,000 is available from our own investment fund for more established businesses in Rotherham and throughout South Yorkshire."

This seems like a very good way to generate new ideas.

I wonder if anything tangible will come out of it.
