Designed to cover everything you need to know to take a bright idea from concept to reality, these free one-hour evening seminars are for students and staff who want to find out more about the world of business and entrepreneurship.
How do I protect my ideas? How do I market a new business or product? How do I balance the books? How can I test my idea out? Where can I get funding from? How do I stay inspired?
Delivered by expert practitioners who are also successful entrepreneurs in a wide range of fields, these seminars will give you invaluable hands-on tips and advice for launching your big ideas into a crowded marketplace.
There's also time after each seminar to network and enjoy refreshments with our experts and other like-minded people.
"Business running skills are crucial to all, particularly engineers with our kind of thinking and training.”
“Managing finances, creating business plans and spotting new opportunities were frightening before I started on the Be Your Own Boss seminars now I have gained a lot of confidence.”
“Each element of the series is vital for any business growth, I have seen my business ideas take shape after the series and have moved from just dreaming to acting.”
“I have run an online radio station for 10 years and could not grow it but now with the skills acquired we are able to move beyond the technical/engineering skills to running the station as a business.”
“Enrolling for the seminars has been the best thing I have done for myself in the past year and would encourage everyone who is serious about business to enroll so that their dreams become a reality."
