Message: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Europe/London' for 'BST/1.0/DST' instead

North Staffs Business Initiative

Business Initiative is a Local Enterprise Agency formed in 1981, covering all of North Staffordshire (Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire Moorlands, Newcastle Borough) and Staffordshire areas (alongside its sister agency Stafford Enterprise). We offer free advice for anyone considering starting a new business; free or subsidised short training courses for start-ups and business support through mentors.

We offer one-to-one support via appointments and monthly training courses.

Business Initiative also owns small business studios, available on subsidised rental on a monthly licence basis, and operates managed industrial workspace – both in Stoke-on-Trent.

Some financial support is available for unemployed clients who want to start a business within the Stoke-on-Trent areas.

Specialism: start-up advice and training.
