Colston Office Centre

Small business support

At the Centre, we talk a lot about business support, but what do we mean by this and what effect might it have on your business?

For a start, there is valuable information from government (Start Up Britain notwithstanding), various agencies and online. Locally, when it comes to business support Bristol is second to none. There is a wealth of advice and information that we can help you find. We also have our own contacts and resources that could help your business.

Business resources

National resources like FSB, IOD, CIM, along with various websites and blogs all contain great information for start ups and small businesses. Issues like business planning and strategy, finance, marketing, HR, H&S, angel investment can be delved into in great detail and pointers on where to find more.

Local resources

Local agencies and networks giving similar information, but often with more detail on the local environment and issues relevant to the area, local networking opportunities, social groups and events.
