Hamilton Project self-employment support for ex-service personnel, veterans and their families

Ever thought about running your own business? Your service background has given you a range of skills that can be an excellent foundation for self-employment - self-discipline, reliability, determination, to mention just a few. The Hamilton Project is a business support programme that will help you apply these skills in a business setting. Established in memory of Richard Hamilton, who served with the 21 SAS before he died tragically in a canoeing accident, it provides access to on-line business education, workshops and an e-mentoring programme, and, if you are based in Oxfordshire, we have funding from the County Council for you to take part.

Want to know more?  Please contact Dr Tracey Marr at Communities in Business Ltd.
