Caroline: ‘Incredibly helpful being able to frame it. The combination of people and tutors was great and I’m inspired to look further into what company structure I should adopt’ Ro: ‘ I have learnt more than I thought I would in 2 days, it has been so useful to meet people outside my network - my next step is to launch my website’ Zara: ‘very good experience, I did not know about this work, technical words, how to explain your idea in a few words. I am impressed with the social business canvas - I’m inspired to look for funding and start up with my two co-founders’Ashley: ‘I came with an idea and I am leaving with a project, it was useful breaking it down and focussing on particular things. It was inspirational hearing all the other ideas’
