Turning business dreams into reality

Over 100 people proved Somerset’s definitely an enterprise culture recently, when they flocked to attend the Dare to Dream Business Start-up Event held at the Taunton Conference Centre, Somerset College, Taunton.

The event was co-organised by the Taunton Conference Centre and Somerset Business Agency, and was so successful plans are now being made to host it throughout Somerset.

Business support agencies and inspirational sessions helped visitors find out how to become self-employed or move their businesses on to the next level.

The event, sponsored by the Community Council for Somerset, was such a success a second one will be held later this year at the Taunton Conference Centre on October 4.

"There are clearly a lot of entrepreneurs out there and we were delighted by the interest. We are now making further plans to hold a regional event as well as others in towns throughout Somerset," said Sam McIntyre, Taunton Conference Centre Manager.
