What have students and graduates been saying about the event....
"The most useful workshop I have been to in my one year as a postgraduate. It is the most practical experience that a student can get whether or not they decide to start a business. It is knowledge that is invaluable and priceless" – Rabi Sule
"It’s an event for everyone to attend because it adds an entrepreneur skill to already acquired academic knowledge" - Oluwabamise Afolabi
"I would recommend this event to all students and staff as it has given me confidence to contemplate starting my own business" – Glenys Jones
"Lively and involving event from start to finish". Every speaker was encapsulating and throughout knowledgeable. Fantastic all round! – Richard Derbyshire
What can I expect?
The Start-up boot camp is run over two jam-packed days. There will be interactive workshops, guest speakers sharing their experiences and networking opportunities with other likeminded individuals. If you have a business idea but don’t know what to do about it, have a business plan but don’t know what to do next or just want to find out more about the exciting opportunity of working for yourself then get involved!
By attending you will have the opportunity to bid for start-up funding and be introduced to potential investors to help you get your idea off the ground.
The programme is FREE, so it can’t hurt to come along. It is aimed at individuals that have a business idea already but even if you decide starting a business isn’t right for you, you’ll still have met some really useful people and have a better understanding of what setting up or working in a small business is all about.
This programme is worth in excess of £3000! By agreeing to attend you are committing to attend both full days.
