Enterprise Nation is delighted to announce the national expansion of its successful StartUp Saturday one day workshops to help thousands more people turn an idea into a business and become their own boss.

For budding entrepreneurs who haven’t been able to attend the monthly workshops in London, StartUp Saturday classes are now coming to a town near you with Morecambe as one of the first launch locations.

The ‘start your own business in a day’ workshops will be hosted and delivered by talented and entrepreneurial StartUp Saturday franchisees.

Until now, the one-day workshop that offers everything you need to know about starting a business has been delivered by Enterprise Nation founder, Emma Jones, in London.

Emma said: “Based on feedback from small business owners around the country, we are spreading our wings and will be coming to locations nationwide.”

Sharon Jackson will be starting her franchise journey with a first workshop in Morecambe on Saturday, September 29.

Sharon is a freelance web designer working with start-ups and small businesses, and will reach her 4th business birthday in November.

She said: “Being a StartUp Saturday franchisee is very much in line with what I do in my freelance career, which is to help people get their business up and running.

“Often this is by helping them get the right website, but much of the time it’s sharing the knowledge I’ve gained over the last few years – the mistakes I made, successes I achieved, and so on.

“I have always liked the ethos of Enterprise Nation and by becoming a franchisee, hope to help even more people successfully become their own boss.”
