The workshops will provide lots of opportunity to meet some like-minded people, increase confidence and learn transferable employability skills – all great for your CV.
You do not need to have an idea already to attend the workshops.
Workshop 1: 18th April 2-4pm
Asking anyone to think creatively on the spot is tough, especially in a room full of people you don’t know. This workshop will focus on team building and highlight the simple steps to communicating and developing business ideas.
Workshop 2: 26th April 2-4pm Teesside Launchpad
Pre-startup entrepreneurs often shudder at the thought of writing a 52 page business plan. Especially when the idea is rough, incomplete and hasn’t been tested. The BMC is the perfect tool to get ideas from heads to paper without having to form complex sentences about profit and loss and 3 year strategies!
Workshop 3: 3rd May 2-4pm
Would you ask your mum what she thought of your business idea? Do you think she would say she didn’t like it if it was going to hurt your feelings? You will get the opportunity to speak to potential customers, test your ideas and use your findings in your final pitch.
Workshop 4: 10th May 4-6
How will you develop your business if you don’t have any contacts? In this session you will test out your own elevator pitches based on your personal values. You will explore networking opportunities in your local area and develop your team’s business pitch.
Celebration Event 6-8pm A networking event to celebrate your achievements over the last 4 weeks. You will pitch your idea to the room with the chance to win a prize. Refreshments will be provided.
