Whether you have an existing business idea, or are just interested in exploring the option of self-employment, Aberystwyth University’s Business Start-up Week (3rd-7th June) is for you!

Designed to provide an overview of the skills and essential considerations required when developing a new venture, Business Start-up Week offers networking opportunities and signposting to help turn your business ideas into reality.

In addition to workshops focusing on key business skills including Financial Planning, Selling, Digital Marketing and Supplier Development, the week includes inspirational talks from entrepreneurs who will provide an insight into their experiences of setting up and developing a successful business.

Sessions are open to all, including students, staff and graduates from Aberystwyth University, with individuals having the option to register for specific workshops or all ten sessions during the week.

Further information, including details on how to register for one or more sessions is available at: www.aber.ac.uk/crisalis

Don’t just take our word for it, see what previous attendees have said about attending Business Start-up Week:

“Business Start-up Week was the most important and useful week I have had so far in my journey as an entrepreneur” commented Ben King, Co-founder of Media Production and Web Design company SurfaceRush who attended Business Start-up Week in 2011 when he was an Undergraduate student.
