These business information sheets should be able to be supplied as PDFs with the potential to be emailed to clients and should also be capable of being printed to be used in meetings with clients by our business Navigators and Connectors. They should be able to be accessed through an online portal so staff can access them anywhere and be able to give to clients in meetings when out visiting business. The sheets should be able to be branded with our own branding (‘white goods’) which we will supply.

• Factsheets that cover topics including business regulations, and trading information that businesses may be required to consider in their operation to help them start up, scale up or grow. Also, information around licensing and registration that businesses may need to consider in their sector.
• Detailed guides and information on a full range of business sectors and types to enable those running or starting a business to be able to be aware of the issues in their sector or with their business type
• ‘How to guides’ covering a range of business topics- such as business planning, marketing etc, as an aid to businesses who need to seek out further information on a variety of topics
• An online interface to be able to easily find the factsheet and send or print for client use, and be able to use in client meeting or email to clients.
