Flying Start Programme for Women

A reminder that you have until 21 November to get your application for in for the Flying Start Programme for Women, the first programme of its kind specifically for university women and recent graduates who are planning to start a business based in the UK within the next 12 months. It is for any women, any age, any degree!

The programme will help participants to start their business within 12 months. The programme is also open to women who have been trading for less than 6 months and will aim to help you grow your business. The programme is free for final year university students and recent graduates (of up to 5 years) from any degree at any level, and any age (full-time or part-time). All types of businesses are eligible.

The programme is completely free and includes:

A 3 day residential course where you will acquire business skills and build your network to get started. The residential will be held on 7, 8, 9 January 2008 at The Park Inn in York, UK. Other programmes will be held through out the country in the coming year so even if you can’t make this date submit your application because there will be others in 2008 and you are able to defer and attend a future programme.

An experienced mentor who will support and help you for 12 months.
Focused follow up meetings where you receive further help you need to get you trading.

Join other women from across the UK to learn how to turn your passion into a sustainable and successful business.
