Help in Starting a Business

February 2003
No 30

The University of Leicester Institute of Lifelong Learning is running a series of workshops in starting up a business, aimed at staff and students at the University and in the 14 colleges of the Colleges-University of Leicester Network (CULN) who would like to become business entrepreneurs.

The programme of four workshops will take place on February 6, 11, 20 and 27, 2003, between 5pm and 7pm, and sessions are open to undergraduate and postgraduate students and academic staff of the University, students aged 16 years and Further Education students studying at level 3 or above from the Colleges-University of Leicester Network, and teachers from CULN member colleges. The Network represents colleges across Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

A nominal fee of 5 will be charged, for four courses which will help participants develop an awareness of the processes and qualities required to change a business idea into reality, and the opportunities available to help the process along.   They will also gain an understanding of legal issues and guidance on how to maximise use of business support mechanisms and will be taught to prepare a good business plan.

Those who are truly inspired by the workshops, may wish to enter the Colleges-University of Leicester Network Business Ideas Competition 2003, for which the closing date is April 30. Further information is available on website www.IDEAS-HOUSE.com

All workshops will be held in the Charles Wilson Building, University main campus, which is fully accessible to wheelchair users.
