The Starting Post is for people with a new business or those thinking about starting up. It is there to support the start-up community across all sectors.

Perhaps networking seems a bit daunting when you’re just starting out? Well Starting Post is the perfect place to meet people facing the same challenges as you and your business, and will help you to grow in confidence.

Delivered in partnership by Formation Zone at the University of Plymouth, and Santander, the events (held on the last Tuesday of alternate months) will be inspiring and informative, as well as giving you the chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs at the same stage as you.
