The programme aims to bring together ideas-stage entrepreneurs from many different ages and backgrounds: new graduates, creative entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, science and technology start-ups, to create a rich interdisciplinary mix in which the peer learning and networking opportunity is as important as the taught component.
Structured around two intensive weekends the programme culminated in a final one day pitching event. The structure encourages participants first to look inwards at their own skills and creativity followed by the opportunity to gain guidance and advice from experts to help move their ideas forward. The final stage allows participants to put what they have learnt into practice and pitch their ideas to representatives from local business support networks with the aim of gaining access to start-up finance, incubation and mentoring. All participants will be teamed up with a mentor to help them develop their idea throughout the programme.
- Develop and focus your entrepreneurial ideas
- Discover if an entrepreneurial venture is right for you
- Network with other ideas-stage entrepreneurs
- Meet and hear from entrepreneurs who have already done it
- Pitch to providers of incubation, start-up finance and business mentoring
The programme is free and is open to individuals who have graduated from the University of Portsmouth, including 2012 graduates.
Candidates will need to commit to being available for the whole 5 days.
