This programme, designed especially for new entrepreneurs defines the essential topics related to entrepreneurship and gives basic tools to start a new business. Using descriptive examples and exercises you will be able to understand the knowledge and skills required in the entrepreneurial journey.

In our era rather than assuming that large companies or the government will provide employment, thousands of people are starting their own businesses. The evolution of our world is presenting new opportunities for entrepreneurs, while challenging the existing business models along the way.

Over 6 sessions, we will challenge your entrepreneurial potential and help you to realize how this new mentality can improve your life and inspire the creation of new opportunities.

This programme is divided into two areas:

1.Understanding Entrepreneurship. During the beginning sessions we will:

·Talk about the essential topics in entrepreneurship

·Help you to develop your business idea

2.Creating your Business. In the last two sessions we will give you the knowledge and resources to design your first plan and we will talk about business laws and raising capital.

This program is designed to inspire, inform and challenge your entrepreneurial talent.

Thank you for taking the first step to further unlock your personal and professional potential. New opportunities lay ahead.

The "Developing and Launching a New Business" course was created with the support of Raymond Hickey: He has extensive experience in financial markets, managing projects and entrepreneurial consulting and business development across Europe.

Both of us have 10 years of experience in Business Development and currently we work and live in London and we have used our global business experiences in the creation of this program.
