Start Something boot camp develops LSBU students’ business ideas
LSBU’s Entrepreneurs in Residence work with students and recent graduates to boost their entrepreneurial and business skills at Start Something boot camp
LSBU students and recent graduates took their first steps towards starting a business at the University’s annual Start Something boot camp.
The six day annual event, which took place between 4-6 July and 11-13 July, saw 14 students from across LSBU’s Schools participate in workshops and seminars gaining support and professional advice.
Run by LSBU’s Research, Enterprise and Innovation (REI) team based at the award-winning Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation, LSBU students and recent graduates worked with LSBU’s Entrepreneurs in Residence to gain skills and knowledge to develop their business ideas.
The group completed an Enterprise Challenge to develop their teamwork and selling skills and took part in a programme of workshops that included sessions on:
- Building and enhancing networks
- Developing clear business plans
- Personal branding
- Generating ideas
- Personal empowerment.
Jacqueline Okach, an Accounting and Finance School of Business recent graduate said:
"I have completely changed how I view business and enterprise after attending the Start Something boot camp. It was one of the most invaluable experiences I have had at LSBU and I am now equipped to take on my otherwise daunting business idea."
Ashley Kelly, a Sports Coaching and Analysis School of Applied Sciences student said:
"I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop; it was very informative and very well presented. I’ve come away from the workshop feeling more confident in myself."
"At LSBU, we are committed to giving our students opportunities to develop the skills and experiences they need to run their own business. This boot camp is a great opportunity for students to take the first steps on their journey to starting a business and to learn from the experiences of our Entrepreneurs in Residence."
