First Steps

If you’re unsure about whether starting a business may be the right choice for you then come along to START UP Uncovered or START UP Connect.

START UP Uncovered

This interactive workshop is designed to help you to decide whether launching a business is the right choice to make based on your personal values.

During the session, we’ll look at your motivations for starting a business and discuss how to manage common barriers which prevent people from setting out on their own. There will be the opportunity to ask questions to a recent graduate who is working on their own business to explore what a real start-up journey can look like, including failures experienced along the way.

Finally, if you decide that starting a business sounds like a good fit, we’ll give you an overview of the vast array of support available from START UP to help you pursue this route.
