Acorns Plus 2011

10 more Acorns enter the world of Business

Acorns Group July 2011Ten more entrepreneurs completed the Acorns Plus ‘boot camp’ this summer at York St John Business School.  The course aims to support them to start their business with confidence including key business areas, such as marketing, strategic planning, managing finance, administration, legalities, communications and networking.

Course coordinator, Irma Gomez, said “One more fantastic group of people attended the course and we are confident they will succeed in the very near future.  We introduced the monthly meetings with our group in Spring and we have seen so much progress, so no doubt this new group will also develop quickly their business idea.”

Entrepreneur, Simon Wallace, said “A comprehensive course covering everything you need to know when setting up a company delivered in a fun and engaging way.  I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone thinking about starting a business.”
