Business tips to boost success rates on offer at West Notts College

Businessmen and women of tomorrow will be getting tips on how to turn fledgling ideas into commercial success at West Notts College next week.

Dr Mike Huxley from the Hive@Mansfield will be visiting members of the college’s Vision Entrepreneur programme at the Derby Road campus to deliver a masterclass in business plan writing on Tuesday (12th March).

Members of the enterprise scheme will discover how to solve business problems, learn how to write a business plan and how to nurture and develop their business ideas.

The Hive is Nottingham Trent University’s purpose-built Centre for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise which supports the creation of new businesses.

The Hive@Mansfield is the outreach project offered to people in North Nottinghamshire.

The project assists individuals or established businesses to explore new ideas for products, businesses or services, helping them with research and evaluation, business planning and raising the awareness and application of enterprising and entrepreneurial behaviour.

Vision Entrepreneur has been set up to coach would-be business people from the college, local schools and the community through monthly sessions, which include inspirational speakers and tips from industry experts. Those whose ideas have the most potential will receive one-to-one mentoring and the backing to develop their plans further.
