If you’re self-employed or running a business in Greater Manchester, you can now benefit from a new and exciting programme. EnterprisingYou. This will be delivered by PeoplePlus Enterprise and the Growth Company.

EnterprisingYou is a pilot project which aims to support the self-employed and those working in the gig-economy. (I.e. those who gain work from an agency or company but are responsible for paying their own tax.)

The programme will offer free mentoring from expert business coaches. Alongside their advice and guidance, you will be able to access useful resources from training and personal or professional development, to skills workshops and seminars. You will also be able to talk to a specialist financial advisor if you feel your finances are holding your business back. We also have a health and wellbeing advisor as well as peer mentoring.

What makes this programme truly unique is the ability to tailor it to your needs. Each individual will work with their business coach to develop their journey and personal plan to highlight what the next steps will be.

EnterprisngYou is ideal for individuals who want to explore their growth potential and set a clear direction for how they are going to achieve their business and personal goals.

Whether you’ve accessed similar programmes before and felt it wasn’t enough, or haven’t had the opportunity to gain any support for your existing business, we can help.


In order to be eligible for the programme you need to be:

  • * A resident of Greater Manchester
  • * Aged 18 or over
  • * Earning less than £27,000 a year
  • * Have an existing business or self-employment venture that you wish to grow
  • * OR be in the gig-economy (working for someone but paying your own tax)
