From Entrepreneur to Enterprise Ready

The search is on for 10 enthusiastic entrepreneurs to participate in a fully funded business support programme.

The Berkshire Growth Hub’s Pre-Accelerator Programme is a five-week intensive scheme being delivered by VitalSix at the new Thames Valley Science Park in Reading.

The programme will include workshops, networking opportunities and mentoring, with the first cohort starting at the end of April 2018.

Half-day workshops will cover all the essentials needed to transform a good idea into a viable business, including:

– Setting up; what are your options?

– Developing sales and marketing plans

– Creating a business plan

– Finance and forecasting

– Finding finance

– Launching a sustainable business

The Pre-Accelerator culminates in an exciting pitching event where course attendees will present their business ideas to an invited audience of experts, investors and small business supporters.

This will be the first of four Pre-Accelerator Programmes being delivered over the next three years, and is being launched at a special event at Thames Valley Science Park on Wednesday 28 March 2018. Booking for the event is through Eventbrite .
