Starting your own firm costs £17k, study finds
Kirstin: I love working with students and colleagues who are very entrepreneurial and who are inspired to start their own business following on from graduation. Business investment is key in the early years of a fledgling business, and I am so pleased that our MMU graduates and staff can apply to MMU Innospace – http://www.innospace.co.uk/ to help them at the early stages of running their business – it most certainly helps reduce the large financial costs that our graduates may not be able to afford following on from graduation.
