The group has enjoyed help with evaluating their ideas for a business, writing their start-up proposal, and developing plans for business growth. The eight-week course was delivered through both classroom sessions and online learning, facilitated by VitalSix business training. The course also provided support in securing funding to bring their plans to life.
The course finished with a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style event and graduation in December, although the group is still meeting up regularly and ensuring they support each other as they take their first steps towards building their dream.
This course was delivered by the Trust working in partnership with Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing and VitalSix, and received excellent feedback from the delegates. We are now looking at our next into business course for residents, working with Bucks Business First.
