A big thanks to the team at RTC and Enterprise Made Simple for asking me to share my business story with lots of their Eureka delegates in Newcastle last week.

Eureka is a NEW initiative which has been set up to encourage unemployed people and those facing the threat of redundancy to set up their own business in Newcastle.

Funded by Newcastle City Council and European Regional Development Fund 2007-13,  RTC North has developed Eureka in partnership with  Enterprise Made Simple.

The series of free workshops, spread over five days, was be open to anyone with an eligible Newcastle post code with the aim of dispelling the fears and reservations that many people have over going it alone.

For more info and highlights of the workshops have a look at the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_x7p1Pfo2c4&feature=youtu.be&a
