A University of Bedfordshire-led free programme for budding business entrepreneurs returns next month.
B-innovative, a European partnership programme funded by the European Union’s Lifelong Learning Programme, has already assisted 180 entrepreneurs in both setting up and expanding new businesses.
Introduced in 2012, the next B-innovative course starts on 19 March at the University’s Postgraduate and Continuing Professional Development Centre in Luton, run by Bedfordshire’s Knowledge Hub.
Consisting of a number of varied interactive sessions, with topics including business idea development, costing and pricing and sales and marketing, the sessions are delivered by local business experts Emerson Patton, ActionCoach, and Gary Jesson, EFM Financial Management Ltd, amongst others.
“We urge would-be-entrepreneurs to sign up for the programme and take advantage of this funded opportunity,” said Daniel Nicholls, B-innovative Project Manager.
“This final cohort will be our best yet, with more content and support in aiding delegates to realise their business dreams. New additions include, talks covering digital media and social entrepreneurship, a support network and the assistance of an expert business advisor to help delegates at every stage of the programme.”
