Enterprising Worcestershire Summer Start-Up Bootcamp

The Enterprising Worcestershire Summer Startup Bootcamp is a FREE business startup course organised and delivered by the University of Worcester and is part funded by the European Union Regional Development Fund.


2019 will be the 3rd year that the Summer Startup Bootcamp has run and has to date supported over 60 individuals to start their own business.


There are 2 bootcamps running in 2019, both of which will run for 4 days initially, with follow up mentoring sessions, workshops and a Pitching Event.


The dates are;


  • 24th to 27th June 2019


  • 22nd to 25th July 2019


We ask that you attend at least 2 days from either course.


During the initial 4 days you will cover the following topics;



Venture Creation

Sales & Marketing



Delivery Team
