This year’s event will be the third time Gosport Borough Council has supported the initiative and its presence in the town is set to be bigger than ever with five events taking place.

Aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners can learn the dos and don’ts of being self-employed and growing their business; discover the basics of bookkeeping; get advice from professional experts ranging from lawyers to marketing; and expand their contacts at networking events.

New for this year is the Gosport Enterprise Fair, which will see speakers offering insights into starting and running a business, plus details of advice and support available.
