Free Programme for Start Up Entrepreneurs

Are you aged 50 or over and starting (or think about starting) a new business in the Greater Manchester Area? Laterpreneurs is a free programme that’s here to help.

This programme is designed to create the support group or “Business Club”, that you need to start up a new business with success. Laterpreneurs provides expert business support for people over the age of 50 who are either looking to start a business or have recently started one.

Salford University has significant experience engaging with this age group through the Silver Workers project: a European funded project which engaged with over 100 participants and 200 employers.

This project helps entrepreneurs to overcome the barriers and challenges associated with setting up a new business with particular reference to the differing needs of those over the age of 50. Alongside expert business support, the Laterpreneurs support group will provide a welcoming and inclusive network to help build longer term relationships that support your business development and growth.

NEW Cohort beginning in early 2023.
