Event description



Two action packed, fun packed, information packed days of learning how to start up your business!

DAY 1 - 28th April

The Hollywood Hello

  • Introduce yourself like a star!

Creating the Vision

We start the boot camp by getting you to understand what a vision is. You need to know what your personal vision is and what the business vision is. The tools we have will help you to visualise and understand where you are heading.

The Value Proposition Canvas

Led by Gareth Sear, the Value Proposition Canvas session will help you understand and further refine how you are creating value for your customers. With lots of colourful sticky notes and facilitated group discussions, this will get you thinking about what you need to succeed.

The Verbal Business Cards

Learn how to express your ‘value proposition’ in various different ways to various different people. This is a fun and highly interactive way of learning what difference your business can make to people. This session will really get you thinking and talking about your business – essential for telling people what you do and opening conversation at networking events.

The Business Model Canvas

Taking the Value Proposition one-step further, we introduce you to the 9 building blocks of business. In this interactive session we go back to the sticky notes and look at how each of the nine building blocks interact with each other to develop your business idea.


In this session you will learn about the research you need to carry out to help you understand the business environment you will look at; customers, competitors and the market.

DAY 2 - 29th April:

Though we think that it is best to ‘JFDI’ and worry about the finances and legal issues later (it is best to see if the market wants your product or service first!), we know people worry about complying with legal, financial and tax issues when they get started. In Day 2, we aim to reduce these fears and give you the confidence to ‘JFDI’.

The Money Issue

Find out everything you need to know about money to get your business started. From start-up costs and financing your start up through to the records, you need to keep making your life easier. Added to with a healthy dose of Tax and what this means to you as a start-up business we finish with getting and understanding of how to price your products and services

Legal structures

There are at least ten different legal structures you can adopt for your business. The most simple is register as self-employed. In this session, we explore the main structures and work with you to understand what is best for your start-up.

Business Names

We know start-ups struggle with a business name. In this session we take a light-hearted approach to understanding what you can and cannot call your business and why. We may even help you come up with a name!
