Start Something: Launchpad
Launchpad is a 3.5 day programme which ran from the 25 - 28 June 2019. The programme supported delegates in developing the necessary skills to turn an idea into a viable business. During the programme, the delegates work on a proposal for their business, alongside other like-minded individuals and mentors.
Throughout the programme each team developed a plan based on their business proposition and on the final day they pitched to a panel for feedback.
The programme will provide introductory sessions on a range of topics, including:
- the commercialisation process
- finding your customers and market
- creating competitive advantage
- designing a business model
- building star teams
- financial strategy
- the art of good pitching.
Launchpad will return from 15 - 18 June 2020.
