Enterprise! Workshops


We run workshops on Wednesday afternoons, designed to equip you with the basic skills and knowledge you’ll need to start your own enterprising venture!

The workshops are based on a range of topics, from ‘Using Social Media’ to ‘Designing a Business Plan’ – they’ll show you how to develop an idea for a product, service, or project, test it, finding funding to build it, and get it going!

Our workshops are recommended to anyone who wishes to enter our Bright Ideas competitions, and regular attendees will gain access to mentoring from our Entrepreneurs in Residence and a share of our £20,000 Enterprise! fund. Ask for one of our Enterprise! Passports to track your participation for a Certificate of Achievement and to gain points towards the Kingston Award.
