Create & Connect

How Flint Bishop Solicitors is helping Derby’s entrepreneurs

Create & Connect is our way of helping you

One of the areas that entrepreneurs struggle with is connecting with the right people.  Time is precious when you are starting a new business and it takes a lot of effort to get a business off the ground. All too often you end up burning the midnight oil.

So we developed Create & Connect. It is an initiative designed to help Derby’s growing number of entrepreneurs get their businesses off to a good start. Create & Connect helps you create opportunities that you wouldn’t normally have, then connect you with leading professionals and successful entrepreneurs who can help you grow and succeed.

Network of Entrepreneurs

Why we have partnered with University of Derby

Another way our solicitors are helping Derby’s entrepreneurs is through NoE, which stands for Network of Entrepreneurs.

This exciting initiative gives you the opportunity to talk to our team to get the right advice and support to build for success. You will also get advice and input from some of the most respected firms in Derby. So on top of the help, you get from our solicitors and the University of Derby, you are also helped by businesses such as Smith of Derby and Datapath, both successful businesses started by Derby entrepreneurs.
