Bootcamp to Business

Each year we hold two bootcamp weekends for people aged 18 – 25 who want to learn more about business, so they can get their ideas off the ground.

The intensive weekends aim to build confidence across a range of topics and is a great opportunity to network with business advisors and other entrepreneurs.

In addition to our bootcamps, we have a range of events and training sessions on throughout the year.
