Schools for Startups, founded by ex-Dragon and serial entrepreur Doug Richard, aims to ‘increase the number of innovative small businesses in the UK, to provide them with world class business advice and to help them succeed’, through a series of one-day seminars. And now you can get a whopping 50% of the ticket prices!
To keep attendees involved, there’ll be live case studies, video examples, Q&A sessions, and topics presented by an entrepreneur with expertise in the field – as well as elusive-sounding ‘guest’ appearances from successful entrepreneurs. “The goal is to teach participants the questions they need to ask themselves and equip them to find the right answers, but there is also a strong element of motivational support that encourages innovation and entrepreneurialism,” explains the Schools for Startups blurb.
Doug Richard says: “Who wants to take business advice from government advisors? The reason I started School for Startups is because intelligent people want to reduce their risk of failure and increase the odds of success. Our goal is to provide all the critical knowledge and experience that anyone needs to start their own business or grow their young business.
“Whether you are a school leaver, a professional looking to change lifestyle or a mum starting a business from her kitchen table, our goal is to help you be a success. It's education for adults from adults: efficient, practical and fun.”

Bear in mind you could qualify for a government grant of £500 to pay for leadership and management training to help out with the ticket prices. All School for Startups seminars meet the criteria and it’s really quick and easy to apply. For more information call Schools for Startups on +44 (0)7939 016179 or email email@example.com.
