What Is Business Bootcamp All About?

Here’s what others have had to say about attending the StartUp & Go Business Bootcamp:

Starting a business is a daunting affair: there are so many different aspects to consider that it can be difficult to know where to start. This course has given me vital advice for free and has set me off on the right path. Now I am no longer concerned about making a wrong move that could set me back financially and I am raring to go. Thank you!

Thank you very much for an extremely helpful and instructive business course. We found it very informative and were thoroughly impressed with the amount of knowledge you and your colleagues managed to convey to us in just three days.

This course has really given me confidence and massively improved my knowledge in very important areas. It’s been run in a very enjoyable way – especially considering some of the finance topics could be quite boring in the wrong hands. Thank you!

We can also introduce you to sources of finance, web designers, accountants, solicitors, etc. This can also, if applicable, lead to ongoing business training & mentoring.
