START UP Ideas

It all starts with an idea...

Date/Time: 7 March 2018, 12:00 - 14:00, 2 May 2018, 13:00 - 15:00

...and you don’t have to have one to get started.

We can help you to uncover your passions, generate ideas and explore possibilities for your start-up aspirations.

Having an idea which allows you to start a business, go freelance or launch a social enterprise is an incredibly exciting achievement - but what if the ‘lightbulb moment’ never comes? What if the ‘winning’ idea never surfaces? START UP Ideas is here to help.

If you have a keen interest in exploring the world of start-ups, but are lacking in ideas, this is the perfect session for you. START UP Ideas is a highly interactive workshop designed to encourage proactive idea generation and spark creative thinking.  

In these two hour sessions we will explore an abundance of ways to actively seek opportunities and generate business ideas by uncovering customer needs, desires and market trends.  Once we’ve got to grips with how to identify opportunities we’ll explore the process to help develop a concept into a fully-fledged business idea.

You’ll leave the session one step closer to entering the exciting world of start-ups, either with an idea to pursue or the knowledge of how to generate one. It’s time to stop waiting for the ‘lightbulb moment’ to strike and learn how to turn on the lights yourself.
