BUILD YOUR BUSINESS THIS SUMMER

It doesn't matter how fast you're going if you're going in the wrong direction, right? If you have a solid business idea and you're ready to make that next step to make it reality this is the project for you. Over the 12 summer weeks we'll help you get your foundations right and get you perfectly ready to make an impact with your brand new business! You'll get to know some local business experts, entrepreneurs and fellow founders who will help you find your way in this new role! This combined with a set of sessions, supervised work, 1:1 mentoring and £500 to spend on your business is a recipe for success! Not bad, huh?
