Why IS THIS EVENT FREE?
This event has been sponsored by our lovely partners. They have bought a number of tickets to enable people to attend for free. There's no catch, no selling, just good, honest advice on starting a business!
What's different about it?
We are the TOTAL opposite of the traditional approach to starting a business. Have you ever heard anyone say the words "Wow! That business plan changed my life!" No..? Neither have we...
Do i have to come everyday?
You don't have to, but if you're serious about starting we recommend you do the whole course.
Is it any good?
No... it's life-changing! But don't take our word for it...
