Summer Start-Up Business Boot Camp 2013
The Trough of Bowland Bar, Bowland College, Lancaster University
What can I expect?
The Start-up boot camp aimed at EU students, staff and alumni and is run over two jam-packed days. There will be interactive workshops, guest speakers sharing their experiences and opportunities to network with other like-minded 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!
There will be opportunities to share ideas and network with budding entrepreneurs, business support experts and professional trainers who can help you to develop your ideas and investigate the resources and structures to build your business on firm foundations.
“A really good all round introduction to starting your own business. Accessible, friendly and informative delivery. I would definitely recommend to others.”
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.
