What is the Business Factory Online?

The Business Factory has been in North Tyneside for years, providing business support during the old nine to five routine.

Now you can also access that valuable knowledge and experience whenever you want it, from wherever you are, 24/7.

That’s because our in-house business advisors have captured their thoughts on the most important business issues especially for the Business Factory Online Portal.

There’s an added bonus of additional resources that we’ve enlisted from external organisations. For instance, our factsheets will always be up to date, whatever happens with regulations and trends. Priceless!

You can work through the resources in your own time, at your own pace. And whether you choose to use the Online Portal to develop a Business Plan, or just dip in and out to find out the latest info in your sector, it’s completely up to you and your preferred style of working and your other commitments.

There’s guidance and resources at every level from just thinking of business ideas (check out the Business Idea Finder tool), to those in the early stages of business right through to those owning or working in an established business.
