Glide New Enterprise Bootcamp is for you.

Now is a great time – the rules are being re-written. Creativity thrives in uncertain times!

The GLIDE New Enterprise Bootcamp is a week of free, online specialist workshops taking place from 7th – 11th of February. It is for new founders and side-hustlers with a business that is underway. Come and learn about techniques and tools for establishing your idea into a healthy business.

GLIDE also offers the opportunity to receive a £1,000 – £2,000 grant. The grant will be matched on a two thirds to one third basis. This means that for every £2 you invest in your own business, the programme will add £1. (Grants will be allocated based on an application and assessment basis. Terms and conditions apply.)

The programme has been designed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. The content is relevant and realistic. Brought to you by professionals who have ‘been there’.

Emma was really great at communicating a straight forward way to approach business planning.

Absolutely loved both Meg and Jody’s sessions, SO many takeouts it’s hard to just choose one.

This has been such an interesting and valuable session. Thank you for sharing such golden content.
