Business Start-up course 2017
Business Start-up graduation
Another year, another group of amazing graduates! On Tuesday 25th July, our 22 Business Start-up students celebrated their graduation at our annual Dragon’s Den event. After 12 weeks of hard work, all of the graduates had the chance to pitch to our three dragons for a share of the £6,000 prize money. This year we welcomed back last year’s knowledgeable ‘Dragons’ including our own Chairman Jennie Ferrigno and Chief Executive Officer of Manor Estates Andrew James. We also welcomed Managing Director of Buckinghamshire Business First, Philippa Batting, who brought a lot of great new advice and community links to help the graduates along in setting up their enterprises.
It was great to see all the new community initiatives and local enterprises being set up and it really emphasises just how valuable this course is. We are really looking forward to seeing our graduates' businesses thrive in the next few months. Congratulations to our graduates!
Look out for our promotion for next year’s course in early 2018.
