Attendance at a business start-up workshop, which can be either a physical one-day workshop or an online workshop across 2 days. Places are limited and are taken on a first come, first served basis.
Following the workshop, up to 20 selected candidates will be allocated a dedicated business mentor who will work with them to produce a strong business plan. They will also attend four 3-hour workshops on Finance, Marketing, Legal and Social Media Marketing. Again, these workshops will be delivered in person and online.
The completed business plans will be submitted and judged, and five finalists will be selected to present their plans to the judges at a mini–Dragons Den event where a winner will be chosen. The winner will be announced at an awards event where they will win a cash prize of £2,500.
Very welcoming and friendly. Amazing session and learnt so much. Tailored the session to my needs. Answered all my questions. Lots of demonstrations on her computer.
The Edeal business advisor was very good at understanding our business and what we want to achieve, helping come up with ideas to help our business function better and become more profitable. She is relatable and informative.
The trainer made everything very easy to understand, I am a novice at all things social Media and I didn’t feel that any of my questions were responded to in a way that went over my head.
I really enjoyed hearing the range of business ideas in the room. It was a thorough workshop with great content covered.
Everything was so clear and well delivered, thought provoking and inspiring.
The Edeal advisor allowed me to talk without interrupting and he was very clear when asking something. He made me feel very comfortable.
