Our two-day bootcamp is a fun and engaging event in which you will work on your business with the Essex Startups team and like-minded entrepreneurs.

This annual event brings together all aspects of business development, allowing you to solidify your start-up idea and prepare to take it to the next stage. You will have the opportunity to hone your business skills and interact with other students with an entrepreneurial mindset. We will help you to set goals to take you closer to your dream of becoming your own boss.

Following your participation in this bootcamp, we will provide support and mentoring over the summer months as you write and build your business plan. You will then have the opportunity to pitch for funding at our Big Pitch event in October, where you could receive up to £3,000 of funding to move your business forward.

Over the two days, we will explore:

  • Products and services within the business model canvas
  • Strategies of how to sell and price your product / service
  • Identify your customer base to inform your marketing strategies
  • Refine your value proposition

This bootcamp is ideal for students and graduates who have been involved with Essex Startups events and mentoring throughout the academic year, and are ready to begin creating a business plan in preparation to pitch for funding.

We look forward to welcoming you to our bootcamp and being part of your start-up journey.

Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 June, 10am-4pm.
