05 Jan Supporting Striving Start-Ups Online
Affinity Sutton are offering a fantastic package of business support to their residents across the country. The Strive Online programme helps Affinity Sutton to support residents no matter where they are in the country. When we created Strive Online we were clear that we couldn’t lose the personal touch that makes Strive so successful, so we’ve coupled new technology with lots of one-to-one advice from a dedicated business adviser. The programme uses the latest ‘learning management system’ (sophisticated website) to allow residents access webinars, tutorials, guides, templates, quizzes, business plans and message their own business adviser. This snazzy software is easy to use and allows our advisers to keep track of how every resident is doing, triggering calls, advice and emails as soon as a resident needs them. For Affinity Sutton’s residents it means there is support on hand when they need it, and they can log in on whenever and where ever they are. Many now are accessing the course for smartphones and tablets to learn about their businesses on the go. The online course is enabling residents who wouldn’t normally be able to get this type support to build businesses and create employment for themselves and others. On top of the Strive Online support, Affinity Sutton are also offering residents the chance to bid for up to £1,000 of start up funding. You can find out more about their Business Start Up Grant Scheme on their website here. If your are an Affinity Sutton resident, you can register to join the course by clicking here.
