What is it?
The CitySpark Workshops series is a 5-week workshop programme for student and graduate entrepreneurs who want to develop, test, and improve their business ideas prior to entry in the CitySpark Grand Final in Spring 2018 and increase their chances of winning one of the 5 x £5000 awards.
Delivered on Wednesday late afternoons from 4.00pm until 6.00pm, these lively and engaging workshops will introduce you to the best tools and provide hands-on tips and advice for founders to validate their thinking, build a strong business case and work towards success in stage two of this year's CitySpark competition.
In each workshop we will introduce a tool or an exercise to help you build a strong understanding of all the key areas of your startup idea. We will then want you to work with us, using these tools, to build a strong base and a sturdy structure to build your business on.
