Getting started with a new piece of software or even a whole new business can be daunting, but with the help of the Open Food Network UK team you will be up and running in no time!
Want an additional helping hand to get you up and running?
Whatever the size of your enterprise, we all need a bit of extra support to get us started sometimes. For this reason we
have a dedicated support team experienced in ‘on boarding’ enterprises. With a one off payment of £120 (inc VAT) – which is offset against future user fees – you will receive:
*The total upfront payment of £120 (inc VAT) for our support package will be credited against your user fees. Once this has been used up, user fees will be 2.4% (inc VAT) on our starter package- see Pricing page for more details.
Sometimes it is useful to have some additional support while you are running – to get to grips with a new feature, import products from a suppliers list or to integrate OFN with an accounting package, email tool or another external system. Ask us for a quote through our Support Form.
In need of a little extra helping hand to establish a prosperous food hub on OFN but don’t have the resources to pay for one of our support packages then please get in touch. Bursary application forms will be available soon!
We know that growing a community food enterprise is really tough work. In order to thrive every community food enterprise experiments, explores and innovates within their local community. While each community food enterprise does this every day, often this learning goes unnoticed and unshared. Wouldn’t it be great if community food enterprises could share their learning and experimentation, month to month, to help each other grow?
We think so! This is why we have started the OFN Group Coaching programme. Every month a group of 4 community food enterprise managers come together for a 2.5 hour online session. Each session, participants will give updates from the last month. Everyone also brings a specific challenge that they would like to talk through with the group – something that you or the enterprise are struggling with. Examples include – internal conflicts, how to attract new customers, how to set prices and margins. Other members of the group will ask questions and work together to help you find answers.
Contact us now if you would like to be part of the next set of sessions.
