Get expert advice on your idea

If you have a really good business idea but don't know what to do next, or you already have a business but need advice on how to scale then book an appointment with one of the team to discuss it further.

Working in partnership with the Peter Cullum Centre for Entrepreneurship (PCCE), our Startup Surgeries are designed to give expert advice and direction on how to get your ideas off-the-ground and then make them a success!

We have two types of appointment that can be booked through the Careers hub:

1) Do you need an opinion on your idea or just have a few questions you'd like to ask?

2) Is your idea a bit more advanced and you are ready to take it to the next level?

Tip - Once logged in to Careers hub search for appointments and then select from:

  1. Introduction and Quick Queries - for early ideas and to find out more about our services;
  2. Business Development - if you are a start-up and want more advice on how to grow the business.
  3. Social Media and Digital Marketing - if you are in the early stage of development, to talk about  how to revitalise/leverage your social media sites for higher engagement.
  4. Start-up Visa – if you are currently endorsed on a Tier-1 Graduate Entrepreneur Visa or Start-up Visa and arranging a catch up. If you are an International Student looking to apply for the Start-up Visa.

Check availability by 'consultant' by selecting Marius StancuSimon Magness or Rui Barros-Silva.
