Target Audience: Anyone across the university who is interested in developing the mindset and skills to become an entrepreneur.

This workshop is aimed at beginners who are interested in considering an entrepreneurial enterprise of any size and follows on from Part 1. Following a brief recap of part 1, in this session participants will discuss their business idea.  This can be by pitch or informal discussion and then constructive support for the business idea will be given by the presenter and other participants.  Similar to Dragon’s Den but with the aim of testing out ideas and concepts and receiving only constructive tailored advice. 

Fun, enthusiastic and empowering, this session is delivered by an experienced academic and entrepreneur and so is orientated to the university environment.   Contribution to the session by participants is optional, so those perhaps  just considering entrepreneurial activities for the first time are very welcome.  Local, national and international support available to experienced entrepreneurs as well as emerging entrepreneurs will also be comprehensively outlined.
