Starting-Up Saturdays

New for 2020, these one-day bootcamps are designed to kick-start your new business

Ready, Set, Go!

Perfect for people who want to turn passions or interests into feasible business ideas, Starting-Up Saturdays are free one-day bootcamp sessions to help you go from Wantrepreneur to Entrepreneur.  A Starting-Up Saturday bootcamp will create a space where you can think deeply about your business without interruption. Through a combination of presentations, activities and exercises, it will teach you some of the skills you need to get your business started.  Providing you with access to expert mentors and the opportunity to connect with fellow participants, building a network to help you on your start-up journey. 

Starting-Up Saturdays are a part of the Guernsey Business Accelerator Programme run by the Digital Greenhouse and Barclays Eagle Labs Guernsey.
