The 5-9 Club is back for 2017!

Do you dream about starting your own business but never seem to find the time around your job/ kids/ life to make progress?

The 5-9 Club is a 12 week structured after-hours course designed to support aspiring business owners through the early stages of enterprise.

The sessions will run every Thursday evening over the 12 weeks with specialist mentors, workshops and industry experts offering support at every stage.

Sessions will include advice on marketing, development and finance, culminating in a presentation where the course participants will pitch their business idea. Previous courses have featured talks from the experts from Turn Lights On, Station Rd Marketing and Talking Social Media.

Last month, with the help of the 5-9 Club, Catherine Poole realised her dream to open her own tearooms in Merthyr Tydfil. She said:

Welsh ICE and particularly 5-9 club gave me my life back, has given me lifelong friends and a business that I am determined to make a success. Thanks to 5-9 club, I opened Lunah Tearooms in Merthyr Tydfil in December 2016 and ‘Thank you’ does not seem big enough.
I hope that the funding for 5-9 club can continue. Its value cannot be measured. It is beyond priceless.

We’re still fine tuning all the details but hope to start the course at the end of January. Please register your interest by emailing [email protected] or calling 02920 202 130.
