Event description

Description

Enterprise Skills Ladder Workshops are run by Surrey Student Enterprise and are open to all students studying any course at the University of Surrey. They are practical workshops run by experienced entrepreneurs on topics such as Funding, Marketing & Branding, Finance and exploring whether starting a business is for you.


Steve Briger will be leading this workshop on financing your business and assessing your options. By the end of this workshop, you will have covered the following areas:-

  • Financial planning: asessing what finance you need

  • Sourses of finance: crowdfunding, small business grants, loans, government start up loans, friends and family, angel investors

  • How to impress investors



Steve Bridger is a business start-up coach, business author, entrepreneur and novelist. He started his career as an advertising account executive for two top London agencies working on blue chip clients in FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods).

After years of providing consultancy advice, Steve came up with an idea for a new product in the gardening market, got a prototype made, produced a small initial quantity, trade marked the name and launched "Spanish Rings" - Spanish Style Flower Pot Holders. Spanish Rings created a Mediterranean-style hanging garden. At launch, the product won the New Product of the Year Award.

The highs and lows of running Spanish Rings Limited formed the raw material for the pre-start up book, "Success before Start-Up". Steve has gone on to provide start-up business coaching while Spanish Rings has evolved into an international mail-order brand.

Steve also mentors Surrey Student Enterprise students. Our mentors are local business professionals, passionate about their specialist area. They volunteer their time to help you by sharing their practical advice on overcoming the hurdles involved in setting up in business.



Enterprise Skills Ladder workshops are generously sponsored by Santander Universities.
