Kick off in Business helps people start businesses

We are the only free, nationwide, field based business start-up support service available to everyone.
Working with a range of partners from Premier League Football Clubs to HMP Prisons, Kick off in Business run short events and courses which are fun, engaging, practical and useful. We provide people with information to set up on their own and at the same time, protect them from the information they don’t need. Online providers and other agencies attempt to provide you with an ocean of information in one go. The result is confusing and complex. We package the common challenges and considerations of starting up and help you tackle them. Starting a business is easier and closer than you think.

Who we are for
If you want to launch an airline, then you’ve come to the wrong place. We help the other 99.9% of the start-up community who wish to set up a conventional business in an emerging or traditional market. Our courses provide uncomplicated, useful information and guidance to anyone who is in the process of setting up a business or simply just exploring the idea.

What's next?
Kick off in Business is exploring a number of collaborative arrangements with other key players in the start-up industry, including Start Up Britain and Virgin. There is a real opportunity to recreate a recognised, trusted and reliable source for free start up and entrepreneur advice.
