Forbes Young volunteer at City University, Business start-up Clinic

Matthew Durrant, Partner at contractor accountants – Forbes Young, has been volunteering at the City University London business start-up clinic, City Enterprise Services. The idea behind the clinic is to offer real business advice in financial and legal matters, to small business and technology start-ups.

Since the start of the year, the clinics have been open for anyone that needs help in the local area and is run by the law students of the City Law school.

As most consultants will already know – it is vital that knowledge learned in the study room is backed up with practical experience. In essence the law students spend time with each client and find out as much information as they can about the issue. Then a professional advisor comes in and goes though the scenario with the students and the client.

Eric Klotz from City University London was keen to recognise the contribution of Forbes Young. “Matthew Durrant’s input has  been invaluable, both in providing useful guidance to early stage startup businesses as well as a key insight for students who learn from witnessing the experience.” Klotz continued “ultimately, City Enterprise Services provides startups and small businesses with a great opportunity to get free high quality professional input as early as possible and this can only be beneficial for their growth and development.”

Startup and small business owners may sign-up for a free consultation through the group’s meetup site.
