Do you have a great business idea but don’t know where to start? Do you need advice and guidance on how to develop your small business?

Watford Borough Council has teamed up with online business support agency, Mi Ventures (MIV), to offer a range of valuable information and templates, for people looking to start up new businesses in the area.

Anyone in Watford can now chat live online, instantly with professional business mentors in real-time without the need to travel anywhere. Whether it’s business start-up advice or support for an existing business that’s needed, MIV’s experienced mentors can help.

Councillor Mark Watkin, portfolio holder for finance, said: “Watford has always been a dynamic centre for business and industry. We’ve got around 3500 businesses in the town – and countless entrepreneurs’ and I would encourage them all to make use of this fantastic free service.”

The council’s work with MIV supports our objective of providing the strategic lead for Watford’s sustainable economic growth.
