B-Innovative, a series of interactive workshops, was designed to provide budding entrepreneurs with the skills, knowledge and confidence to make their own business idea a reality. Our business experts worked closely with delegates to develop their idea, looking at all aspects they needed to consider before starting a business.
Each interactive session was delivered by experienced presenters selected for their expertise. The sessions were designed to encourage participation using case studies, practical exercises and enabling delegates to network. The sessions also encouraged self-education, with tasks to complete both at the sessions and in their spare time, which complimented knowledge gained at the workshops.
The benefits included:
- Support in writing a business plan
- Opportunity to deliver a “Dragon’s Den” style pitch to the University of Bedfordshire’s panel of experts
- Expert feedback to help develop the business ideas, detailing further support that may be required
- Opportunity to win a cash prize, one-year membership to the Chamber of Commerce, or further mentoring sessions with a business expert
B-Innovative has helped me to have better understanding of the steps to follow when starting a new business.
I entered the B-innovative programme as it provided the ideal first steps in embarking on a business start-up mission. Also, the prize money was hugely beneficial to help build our early stage products.
