Do you have a business idea but don’t know where to start?


Allia Future Business Centre is prioritising Peterborough applicants for new building business programme

The free Allia Ideation and Validation programme has been designed to help entrepreneurs plan out the early days of building a business, what to do to get set up for success and to identify if an idea has legs.

The programme is two months long and includes workshops and 1-2-1 time with dedicated business advisors. Applications are open to all types of ventures, be it a regular start-up, a charity or a social venture.

As the programme develops, it aims to create a community of like-minded people who understand - or want to learn about - how to start building a business.

Applicants from Peterborough will be prioritised, but ventures in the Greater Cambridgeshire area will also be accepted. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2021.

The Ideation and Validation programme in Peterborough is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
