The Inspiring Enterprise programme is targeting the unemployed, lone parents, older workers, people with disabilities and people in minority groups.
The programme managed by WSX Enterprise will include a web portal full of information, tools and resources, ‘is it for me?’ taster sessions, workshops, and dedicated mentors.
Peter Grant, chief executive of WSX Enterprise, said: “Since the recession of 2008 we have seen a dramatic rise in the number of people starting their own business.
“This project will target specific groups and help individuals set up enterprises, which can often seem a daunting task.
“We are offering a huge amount of help and support which includes a Friday club for peer-to-peer support, networking opportunities and even one-to-one meetings for those who find it difficult to interact in group sessions.”
The M3 corridor runs from Southampton to the M25 and includes Winchester, Andover, Alton, Farnham, Basingstoke, Farnborough, Camberley, Woking, Bracknell and everywhere in between.
