Come along to St Andrews and have a go at building a business in a weekend – it’s a bit like a weekend-long version of the Apprentice, where their will be a winning team, chosen by a panel of judges on the Sunday.
You will be joined by 70 other people from many backgrounds who all want to have a go, have fun and maybe create something exciting.
Come along with an idea for a new business, no matter how crazy you may think it is. You will be given a chance to sell the idea and build a team to help you make it happen.
We will give you mentors, coaching sessions on business plans, sales and marketing and pitching to investors.
The event will finish with each team pitching their business in 5 minutes to the judges.
The winning team will be given prizes, such as business advice, to help them take their business on to real success.
