Start-up or non-starter? 
Many aspiring entrepreneurs would like objective, impartial and candid analysis of their business idea. This can point out weaknesses, failures and omissions before they impact the businesses' chance of survival. In some cases, such analysis may persuade the entrepreneur to chose another opportunity, or to substantially revise the idea. More often, it will highlight the requirement for a small number of key fundamentals to be met before embarking on any business venture.

A basic half-day "Business Analysis and Action Plan" is available for 150
(Funding may be available through Business Link's eVoucher scheme)

Failing to do this early and well is frequently a limiting factor for owner managed companies.
