Enterprising advice

Prince’s Trust which supports and helps young people to start and develop their own businesses is to hold a four day series of free enterprise workshops in Louth from March 18 to 21 at the Louth Enterprise Centre.

The Trust, which last year held similar successful events in Louth, Boston and East Lindsey, will be offering 600 new start-up loans to young entrepreneurs this year, after securing £1.65m in funding from the Start-Up Loans Company, an independent body, chaired by Dragons’ Den entrepreneur James Caan.

The funding comes following the government’s announcement of a £10m loan fund to support 18 to 30-year-olds to set up in business.
