How will it help me start a business?

We aim to help you build your confidence, network with business owners and experts and learn everything you need to launch your business. At the end of Bootcamp to Business you should feel prepared to take your business to the next level – whether that’s officially becoming self-employed

Bootcamp graduates have also told us they loved making friends with people who share their passion for business and understand the pressures of becoming self-employed.
