SPARK is a step-by-step programme aimed at students from any discipline with little or no business experience providing support to develop an idea into a possible scalable venture. Attendees will gain practical insights and skills to transform their initial ideas into viable and well-prepared business concepts, setting the stage for successful entrepreneurship.
At the end of six-week workshops attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of their business, an understanding of how to develop a basic business plan, and a first stage pitch-deck which will equip them to compete for £500 seed funding.
SPARK is for students, staff* and graduates of 4 years or under from Oxford Brookes.
* NB. Staff are welcome to attend the Spark programme for learning and development purposes, but are not eligible to be allocated seed funding.
The workshops will be delivered in person at the Enterprise Centre, Tuesdays 4:00-5:30pm, starting 6th February, until 19th March. Through Spark, attendees will get to meet with and learn from experts, successful alumni, and other like-minded people who are on the same path as them. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone that wants to test and develop their idea in a low-risk way and start to build their network.
