The bootcamp is a chance for student entrepreneurs to gain valuable guidance and advice on developing their ideas and starting their own business. It also gives them a great opportunity to work on building relationships and networks with other aspiring entrepreneurs.

Students who attended the bootcamp will have the chance to enter the Big Pitch this October, where they will pitch their business idea to a panel of judges for the chance to win up to £3,000 worth of funding. The students will work with the Essex Startups team over the summer on their business plan and they will automatically be entered in for a chance to pitch.

For any advice on starting your own business please contact the Essex Startups team: startups@essex.ac.uk.

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.
