Our strategic objectives

To develop a high quality and pro-active voluntary sector for the benefit of the
residents of the Dudley Borough by positively engaging partners in support of
voluntary activity



Dudley Council has teamed up with successful local business owners and consultants to offer dragon’s den type events for new or existing businesses to pitch their ideas to experts.

You will have the opportunity to talk your ideas through with experienced business professionals and advisors who will offer their advice and support to help you turn your business idea into a reality.
The initiative is aimed at people who are looking to set up a new business or those considering expanding or changing the direction of their existing one.
It is for entrepreneurs, businesses and organisations based in the Dudley borough.
Everyone who pitches will receive immediate advice on viability, strategy, tactics and networking opportunities.
One winning idea will receive £1,000 of business consultancy.

The Ideas and Innovation Dens will be held at libraries across the borough during the week. Places are limited and pitch opportunities are available on a fist come, fist served basis. Go to Eventbrite to register and search ‘ideas and innovation dens’.
