Are you a budding entrepreneur who could benefit from some FREE business support? Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is encouraging local entrepreneurs to take advantage of a new online business support service, Rebel on Demand.This business bitesize support service for small businesses is available to anyone running their own enterprise or thinking of starting up their own business.
Rebel on Demand is the first step in considering a future in entrepreneurship, by helping you formulate an idea that you are passionate about. Once you have found and developed your creative spark, and have considered it as a viable career path you can develop and explore it in detail with the Council’s Go For It programme with your local Enterprise Agency.
The service contains many videos and articles, offering free and impartial advice on topics such as starting up without debt and making sales and increasing confidence and motivation. The on-demand platform also allows users to tailor their learning journey and record progress, and it also offers ‘next step’ advice through automation.
Rebel Business School co-founder and CEO Simon Paine says Rebel on Demand is designed for people with busy lives who want and expect everything to be a click away. He said
“People are very busy and everyone expects services to be on demand 24/7. The difference is we don’t have a subscription fee and we never will.”
Mr Paine says he wants to see brighter days in Northern Ireland.
“We know that Northern Ireland has had a hard 18 months due to the pandemic and there are a lot of big economic issues to work on. So we want to play a part, encouraging people to start up and helping them to grow.”
Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Billy Webb commented,
“This is a fantastic opportunity for all of the budding entrepreneurs of the Borough. I would encourage all of our new and upcoming businesses to register for this service which will provide valuable knowledge to those who are new to the business industry. It’s great to see these services being so readily available, 24/7, with the added benefit of being free of charge.”
Rebel on Demand is the latest product from the Rebel Business School which, earlier this year, won a prestigious Queen’s Award for Promoting Opportunity. For more details on the services available visit www.antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/rebel-on-demand
