'Handmade in Doncaster' – Free support to start up businesses and local entrepreneurs

Following a successful launch at last year's Business Showcase ‘Handmade in Doncaster’, will be returning with more new, innovative and creative small businesses. 

Visitors will be able to visit the team at the Launchpad & Mentoring Enterprise Zone where existing clients will be exhibiting their products and where dedicated Business Advisors are on hand to answer any questions relating to starting a business in Doncaster.

Launchpad Mentoring is proud to support the Enterprise Zone at this year's Business Showcase.

Doncaster businesses that have been trading for up to two years can access the fully funded Launchpad Mentoring Service. Our mentors have significant knowledge and experience from a range of business sectors and environments. They offer one-to-one tailored support focusing on your needs and requirements, providing guidance when you and your business need it most.

A mentor is a local business person whom you can bounce ideas off. They can also help you explore and develop new ideas for your business.

Building a relationship with a mentor can be a rewarding positive experience which not only supports your business growth but helps you develop personally too.

Launchpad is a unique scheme which forms part of the Sheffield City Region Growth Hub. Funded by the European Union Regional Development Fund and delivered by local authorities within the Sheffield City Region and the Princes Trust.
