You have worked hard and achieved your degree and now moving onto the next chapter in your life, but what direction should you take?
There are different options open to you that will allow you to build on the skills that you have developed, one these options is starting your own business.
Running a business is hard work and challenging, but it can also be exhilarating, exciting and rewarding allowing you to use your skills to the full and develop new ones along the way.
If this is the route you chose to explore then help is at hand. UoC students and graduates can access the help and support to research your intended business, everything from market research, to raising finance to business planning, this could be one to one support or attendance at workshops where you will be able to meet likeminded people. To find out more, drop me an e-mail and we can start to put the support in place which will help you. If you have moved away from the area we will be able to put you in contact with local provision and also provide support via e-mail, telephone of skype.
Keep an eye out for details of the different business sessions we will be running this year on campus and during Global Entrepreneurship Week in November!
In addition the university has agreed to offer graduate start –up support packages to help you with business location at their business centres, again contact me if you would like further information.
Whatever you chose to do, think it through, get help were you can and good luck with it.
