BSEEN Graduates

Take a look at some of our previous participants

“I had the skills for making an ambulance work and making cakes and just needed to fill in the business part which is what BSEEN really provided. Everything I needed for starting a business I got through BSEEN. The business support provided me with the confidence to go forward and the money helped that process.”

– James, The Cake Doctor

“I was really looking for help to gain the basic business skills that I need to run my business, which BSEEN have been very helpful with. I think I was a bit quieter about promoting myself at the beginning of the programme, whereas now I’m getting myself out there which is really good, and getting more customers in which is always amazing.”

– Sarah, And Dance Bespoke Dancewear
