Everything you need to know about our startup training bootcamps
We like to start with a bang – you’ll start your 12 month experience on the BSEEN programme by participating in one of our intensive startup bootcamps.
We want you to start your entrepreneurial journey with a solid foundation of knowledge, so you can take your first steps with confidence. So, we’ve recruited a team of expert trainers, who’ll deliver a series of interactive workshops on key topics, including digital marketing, sales and pitching, finance, business planning and getting into a founders mindset.
Our trainers have a huge amount of experience and wisdom to share with you, and are at your disposal to answer any burning questions.
The bootcamp usually takes place over 5 days at one of our partner universities, but is currently being delivered via online workshops.
The April Bootcamp will most likely take place online. There will be a series of webinars (lasting 1.5 hours each) taking place on the following dates. You would need to be available for 1 or 2 webinars on each of these dates.
12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 19th & 20th April 2021. There will be follow-up workshop sessions on 21st, 22nd and 23rd April 2021.

“I learned a lot from the real life examples, as well as the chance to speak out more and gain confidence”
“I loved how the trainers inspired us to think differently”
We also welcome alumni back to the bootcamp to share their experiences with you – the perfect opportunity to quiz an entrepreneur a little further ahead than you on the challenges they’ve faced and the lessons they’ve learned.
At previous bootcamps, we’ve also held sessions on Mentoring, Legals and Intellectual Property and How to develop your visual identity.
