Is my idea too complicated for this?

The goal of Saturday School for Business is to take ideas for new products and services and guide them so they can exist in the real world, creating your business.

I have experience creating new products and services across many industries such as healthcare, technology, local government, and fast moving consumer goods.

Though some ideas may seem complex, once their core value has been identified there is always a way to test it. This has proven true for many projects.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking in the local area is restricted but it is possible to drive if you're willing to pay for parking.
