Self-employment is confusing enough, but through the Incubator journey we will provide you with all you need to make self-employment a sustainable and lucrative career move for you.
IPSE is a not-for-profit that has been running for over 21 years, so we are well aware of the challenges you face. Independent working doesn’t mean being alone, through the Incubator and IPSE membership you are connected with thousands of likeminded self-employed workers.
We have structured the content so you’ll receive monthly templates, guides, and advice to strengthen your business, sales, marketing and financial knowledge. As well as this, there is a whole host of other information and opportunities that will be relevant throughout the year such as tips for your mental health, cyber crime advice, events, webinars and networking, plus much more.
As well as the Incubator, you will have access to an account manager who will send you monthly emails to keep you motivated and access to all the benefits IPSE has to offer.See what our members say
