Westminster’s entrepreneurs of the future are being offered FREE places on an acclaimed workshop to turn their hobbies and dreams into a business.
The hugely popular two-week Pop-Up Business School run in partnership with Westminster City Council is returning to the City from July 8 – 19.
The course at the Soho Centre, Westminster Kingsway College, is aimed at everyone from those with no cash and no business experience to fledgling start-ups that need guidance to keep on track.
At a similar event held last year more than 100 people attended with a quarter of them starting a new business and getting their first sale within five days.
Simon Paine, PopUp Business School co-founder and CEO, said:
"There’s nothing better than meeting someone with no business experience and guiding them through their first sale - it can transform lives.
“You don’t need money, experience or a university degree to start a business. You just need an idea, some passion and a bit of help.
“Many of those attending will leave with a business and a first sale. Those who don’t will still take away some basic skills, practical advice and confidence.”
The school boasts of offering opportunities to every member of society and welcomes applications from across the board.
Councillor Rachael Robathan, Cabinet Member for Finance, Property and Regeneration, said:
“This is very much a business school stripped bare of all but the essentials to start up a business from scratch.
“The experience of setting up your own company, the joy of seeing your first sale, this is something that every business, no matter how big, has gone through.
“Westminster City Council is proud to support schemes like this that offer opportunities for everyone across all backgrounds.”
