Orpington Success for Start-up Mums

Congratulations to the twelve aspiring entrepreneurs who have completed the six week Business Start-up course in Orpington. The innovative course, delivered by Orpington 1st in partnership with Successful Mums, supports local women in turning their business ideas into reality..

The course provides a step by step guide to starting up a business and enables participants to identify the transferable skills they may have already developed through parenting. Attendees benefit from the insights of a host of expert guest speakers, including international social media expert, Zoe Cairns, who has recently appeared at a NATO conference, as well as the ITV show 'This Morning'.

Successful Mums graduate, Regan Anderton from the Cooking Shed, said: “The Successful Mums Business Start-up course has given me the skills, knowledge and the confidence that I need to take my business forward”.

Jane Knight, founder of Successful Mums, said “It is great to work with so many enterprising women that recognise how their parenting skills can be used in business. I’m looking forward to seeing these businesses flourish”.

The next course is planned for April 2016. To book your place contact

The sessions are run at the offices of Orpington 1st located on Orpington High Street. As well as a training venue, the ‘Enterprise Hub’ provides flexible, affordable office space for meetings or interviews. For more information contact
