Event description

Description

Entrepreneurial Spark is the world’s largest free business accelerator, and we’ve helped thousands of entrepreneurs across the UK to realise their entrepreneurial dreams. We love what we do, and take pride in our work. The figures speak for themselves – 85% of the companies we’ve worked with are still trading today.

Even better, our programme is fully funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland so, no charges and we take absolutely no equity from the entrepreneurs we work with.

We enrol entrepreneurs and businesses from any sector, of any kind. But what’s more important to us is working with individuals; we get excited by developing mind-sets and behaviours to bring out the natural entrepreneurial leader within.

Want to know more? Interested to find out what it all looks like? Think you might have what it takes? Sign up for a hub open morning now!

Our hub open mornings are led by Fay Weir, Entrepreneur Development Manager and Kayleigh Walker, Entrepreneur Development Apprentice from the Royal Bank of Scotland.

The open morning consists of:

  • Networking – get the chance to meet everyone else on the tour and some of the Edinburgh hub entrepreneurs.
  • A short presentation – find out more about how the Entrepreneurial Spark programme works and how the Royal Bank of Scotland play a part.
  • Meet an entrepreneur – the chance to speak to an entrepreneur about how they find the programme and of-course, hear their 60 second pitch!
  • The entrepreneurial spark hub will then be open for everyone to go and look around and speak to more of our entrepreneurs.
  • Q&A – once everyone has had a chance to look around the hub, the q&a will take place in a group, so that everyone gets the most from the experience where you will be encouraged to ask questions about the programme.

Sign up today to join us on a tour and join the entrepreneuring revolution! If you can not wait and want to find out more, please check out www.entrepreneurial-spark.com
