Free PopUp Business School is coming to Shrivenham

on Wed, 14/08/2019 - 9:09am

This autumn, the South and Vale Business Support Team will bring the free five-day PopUp Business School to Shrivenham for people looking to start and/or expand their own business without using any money. 

Each day from 7-11 October, the PopUp Business School will be held at the Viscountess Barrington’s Memorial Hall, from 10am to 3pm, to give practical advice on how to get a business idea off the ground through a series of hands-on workshops. 

The informal workshops help give people the vital skills they need to help them make money doing what they love, and everyone is welcome to attend all week or just turn up to the workshops they feel are most useful.  

This is the fourth time that South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils have hosted the event to encourage residents to start their own business with previous events in Didcot, and earlier this year, in Faringdon and Berinsfield. 

At the Faringdon and Berinsfield events, nearly half of the people that attended the courses started a business and made their first sale by the end of the week.  The new businesses included local crafts, professional services, arts and entertainment, and a food business.
