Event description

This workshop focuses on the implementation of your start-up idea. It will cover project management, a rough guide to legal structures, decision making, reflective practise, and how to develop niche skills that you need to make your idea a success.  
You will leave with a practical plan about how you will operate as a start-up.
The workshop is for people who would like to work with others to realise a community-focused business start-up/project or realise initiatives within existing organisations. It will also provide useful tools and approaches for group leaders and facilitators who want to work with teams to set up community enterprises or projects, or who want to explore replicating edventure in their town.

"...It was run brilliantly and really well attended. As always there was a great mix of people of all ages, backgrounds and reasons for being there. The courses are always well-run, really interesting and accessible. I’m always amazed by the quality and experience of the teachers. I’m doing three courses at the moment - all brilliant". 

"Just spent 2 days learning what they do, why they do it and how they are inspiring other communities to take up the challenge too. Such fantastic course design, people skills and imagination! Engaging young adults, helping inspire entrepreneurship, building community! What's not to love?!"
