Announcing the launch – Surrey Chambers of Commerce Start-Up Academy

The Surrey Chambers of Commerce, supported by projectfive and Eagle Radio, are delighted to bring
you our Start-Up Academy. By becoming a member of the Academy you can work alongside your peer
group and grow your business. By utilising the expertise of our members, we can ensure that you will
get the best advice and resources needed to develop your business and increase your network.
The Academy will take place once a month from 21st April – 16th November 2020, when a graduation
