Becoming a Disabled Entrepreneur: Self-Employment and Starting a Business

Explore self-employment and starting a business for those who identify as disabled

Join us on 15th February from 1 PM to 3 PM for an informative webinar: "Becoming a Disabled Entrepreneur: Self-Employment and Starting a Business."

Recent research from Small Business Britain reveals 25% of entrepreneurs identify as disabled or neurodiverse. Surprisingly, despite this significant representation, businesses owned and operated by individuals with medical conditions or disabilities often haven't received the attention they deserve.

An entrepreneur is an entrepreneur and the initial challenges of starting a business - such as finance, building awareness and creating a solid business plan - are universal. However, entrepreneurs with medical conditions can often also face additional hurdles.

In this engaging online session, hosted by Cheshire and Warrington Growth Hub and Local Enterprise Partnership and DWP, we'll explore self-employment and starting a business as viable options for individuals with long-term conditions or those who identify as disabled.

Benefit from the wisdom of our expert panel of speakers, including representatives from Ability Connect, A-D Directed, Cheshire and Warrington Growth Hub and the Department for Work and Pensions.

This webinar is your opportunity to understand the full level of support available for aspiring disabled entrepreneurs - learn about the extra help available for those looking to start a business.

Our session includes insightful talks from successful entrepreneurs who have faced and conquered challenges related to their conditions.

Meet our Speakers:

  • Dr. Mark Esho MBE: Entrepreneur, Inspirational Speaker and #1 Best-Selling Author
  • Michael Leibe: Entrepreneur, ADHD Educator and CIM Accredited Support Coach for ADHD
  • Paul Chapman: Growth Hub Manager, Small Business Owner and Business Mentor
  • Jayne Johnson: Disability Employment Adviser - Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)

After the session, attendees will gain exclusive access to valuable resources and additional support to guide their journey toward self-employment or entrepreneurship.
