The Entrepreneurial Academy

Inspiration and advice for ambitious entrepreneurs.

WHAT IT IS

Designed for entrepreneurs, this programme will provide you with a suite of one-day, practice-based workshops that will elevate your skills and knowledge. 

Delivered by experts who have hands-on experience of running a business and supporting entrepreneurs, you will develop critical skills and thinking and be equipped with the structures, tools and techniques needed to implement the learning in your own business. You can feel comfortable troubleshooting your business challenges with the support of an expert provider and the input of other entrepreneurs gathered in the room. It’s the ideal opportunity to learn new skills or refresh your knowledge.

Cost of attending the workshops

Attendance at the workshops is free of charge but, in order to comply with European Union Regulations, the support is awarded as De Minimis Aid or Start Up Aid, as appropriate.  This means you will be sent an application form to complete, including a State Aid declaration, before being offered a place at a workshop.  After you have attended the workshop, you will receive a State Aid letter outlining the value of this support.  The State Aid value of each workshop varies from approximately £350 - £700.
