Start your own business

Whatever your motivation, The MedBIC has a range of services available to support you on your new journey.

Our business advisers can help you decide if running your own business is the right step for you. They can help answer the potentially life-changing questions:

  • Is now the right time for me?
  • Where do I start?
  • Is there a market for my product?
  • Who are the competitors?
  • How can I finance the business?’

Working with our partners at Chelmsford City Council, we are committed to helping create a vibrant and thriving local economy.

We support the work of the BEST Growth Hub and are always looking for ways to help our local businesses and to provide services for businesses looking to move to the area.

Take a look at the many services on offer from the BEST Growth Hub, or if you require something a little more bespoke, do not hesitate to get in touch with them. They have an excellent network of partner organisations, so if they are unable to help you they will signpost you in the direction of someone who can.

We also support the work of our partners at Invest Essex who work directly with companies to provide a free, bespoke and confidential service to identify a profitable business location in the UK enabling businesses to take full commercial advantage of the UK’s largest market opportunity as quickly and efficiently as possible.
