Supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs.

"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing" Walt Disney

2019 is the year to stop talking about what you want to do professionally and start taking some positive steps towards achieving your goals. Sometimes all it takes is a leap of faith to START SOMETHING!

Are you aged 16-30 and dreaming about..?

- Starting your small business
- Developing your existing business idea
- Developing your business plan
- Setting up your side-hustle 
- Finding your voice in the work-place

Or simply, thinking more like a savvy entrepreneur! If the answer is yes, the Next Generation - Start Something! free course is for you.

Course timetable:

Tuesday 12 March - How do I start?

What they don't teach you at business school. Asking the questions that will help mould your success!

- Finding good ideas and what happens next

Tuesday 19 March - Who is my market?

There are nearly seven billion people in the world. Find out how many of them want what you've got. Market research, done right.
