Doug Richard, serial entrepreneur and original BBC2 Dragon, moves ahead with his ambitious plan to fast-track fledging entrepreneurs and business owners onto the road of success. Due to recent popular demand Doug and the School for Startups team are holding their much esteemed “Start Here! Starting & Growing a Successful Business” master class at The University of Newcastle in February 2010.

School for startups is the UK’s premier provider of business training and tuition. The seminars are designed to be fully interactive, incorporating ‘live’ on the day delegate case studies, video examples, lectures, interactive discussions and Q&A sessions. Doug’s goal is to teach participants the questions they need to ask themselves and equip them to find the right answers. Doug is a humorously entertaining host and will leave you feeling inspired and refueled!

 At “Start Here!” you will learn:

  • The key questions every entrepreneur must be able to answer before starting or growing a business
  • How to write the perfect business model
  • How to identify your product and your market
  • How to start an affordable marketing campaign to increase your sales leads
  • How to treat the recession as an opportunity, rather than a threat
  • How to make money and secure investment

  • 6 hours of business tuition with one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs
  • Access to online resources and materials, including membership of VentureNavigator (see details below)
  • 12 month’s free subscription to Doug’s monthly newsletter
