We let you know you earlier this year that after 10 years of our Enterprise Programme we were changing the format. The new online rolling programme will enable us to support even more budding entrepreneurs to make their business dreams a reality.

Dele Ryder, Partnerships and Fundraising Manager, said: “We invest each year into our business skills and jobs programmes to tackle inequality and create opportunities for customers to improve their life chances.

“The updated programme ensures that customers looking to set up their own business from home or in the community have access to flexible support through a range business and skills online classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced.”

Who is it for?

A2Dominion customers aged 18 and over who want to start their own business or want to take their business to the next level, with support from business experts.

Business in a Box is a series of online workshops, broken up into three levels. You only need to attend the workshops relevant to you and your business. Whether you have a business idea and don’t know where to begin, or you have started a business but need some support to take it to the next level we can help.
