Business advice service celebrates

A Mansfield based accountancy firm is celebrating 10 years of providing a free package of support to local business start-ups.

Stopford Associates established Flying Start in 2003 as a reaction to the high failure rate of new businesses and the lack of professional start-up support in the local area.

Flying Start encouraged business growth in Mansfield through a package of free support that helped local people develop their business plan and get their business up and running.

Any businesses interested in the Flying Start scheme should phone Stopford Associates on 01623 420 269.
