Business Advice & Mentoring

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Through these unprecedented times SPARK is committed to delivering its same high-quality support. With the health and wellbeing of students and staff being a priority, mentoring appointments will now be held over the phone and workshops will continue online.

In the past two years over 100 businesses have been successfully started with some receiving national recognition/coverage. All these businesses have benefited from expert and experienced advisers.

Our pre-start-up advisers can help you to consider:

  • your ideas
  • what is motivating you to start your own business
  • what skills you have in order to start your business

Our resident Business advisers can take you through all stages of business planning providing specific and confidential advice including finance, business planning and marketing.

In addition to our full-time Spark team, we also have links with a range of specialist external advisers including solicitors, accountants, intellectual property (ip) experts, marketing and business mentors to give you and your business all the help you need.
