START & GROW YOUR BUSINESS! – A Free Event Aimed At BME Young People
April 24, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Save for Later
Are you eager to learn how to start your own business or need a little inspiration to further develop your business idea? or Are you in need of advice about funding options? Why not join us for this free educative and inspiring evening?
We are very excited to be organising this free event for all but most especially the 18-25year olds of our community to raise ambition, build confidence and inspire them to be the best they can be.
Even if we all shy away from the fact that not every one has access to the right guidance around them or role model to look up to hence with this in mind we are bringing some of our older models who can help guide the young ones in the right direction and hopefully build a mentor-mentee relationship after the event.
With over two years experience of organising free events for black Africans and with over 500 people already touched by what we do, this is another opportunity not be missed. Past events provided opportunities for some to learn and develop skills, meet new contacts who have helped with jobs, mentorship, advices and more.
