Description

Is your future to fulfil your dream to be an entrepreneur?
Got a brilliant idea to do a start-up?

Then we invite you to "Create your Future" with us.

At any given time, an average of 60% of people in work are considering changing their job for a better position. This is against the rising trend in the work place of jobs being lost to new technology and automation, making effective job search even more difficult. How do you stay one step ahead?

As a result of these challenges in the labour market, more people are also considering setting up their own business, and taking charge of their lives. The latest Companies House data shows business formation reached another record high in 2016 with over 650,000 new businesses started. This reflects the continuing trend of the rise in entrepreneurship and why now may be the best time to become an entrepreneur.

Entreprenuers will learn how to:

  • Start a business,

  • Create a strong business plan,

  • Protect their idea or product (Intellectual Property),

  • Understanding funding: Startup loan, crowdfunding, and

  • Find the right co-founders.

Led by entrepreneurs - Sandra Corita and Victor Brittain-Wong - and open to all budding entrepreneurs and anyone who is already trading.

These masterclasses are an amazing opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and for personal development and growth, giving you a powerful framework to achieve success in your ventures.
