Every business starts with a great idea, but that’s not enough to guarantee success. Behind the scenes, it takes planning, hard work and market research to get an idea off the ground. The Level 3 Certificate in Business Start-up is designed to make setting up a business simple. It provides the practical information and support you need to write your business plan, analyse your competitors and pitch your idea to investors. Running a business day-to-day can be challenging, but this qualification will help budding entrepreneurs to find out what they’re capable of.

What is ABE?

ABE provides professional business qualifications that can lead to career development or further study. Operating in over 100 countries worldwide, ABE is regulated by Ofqual, which regulates courses and exams in England.
