Event description

What is Pioneer?

Pioneer is a dedicated short course for individuals who want to develop the knowledge and skills to excel as an entrepreneur. If you have a business idea, are in the early stages of starting up a venture or are keen to set something up in the near future, this is the course for you.

Pioneer provides a starting point for those on the start-up journey and the skills learnt will encourage you to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set that adds value to every stage of your career.

It's an exciting, motivating and invaluable series of monthly workshops that will give you the head start you need to make your business a success. 


What can I expect?

Each month, an entrepreneur or expert in their field will take you through an engaging, informative and practical session filled with tips and advice from those who have been there and done it. 

Plus, you'll be part of a community of likeminded, ambitious individuals who will support and learn from each other along the way, maximising your chances of making your venture a success. 

Topics include Innovation, Marketing Your Start-up, Lean Business, Pitching Skills, Funding Sources and more.
