The Spark Enterprise Academy takes delegates through a series of 11 sessions delivered by industry professionals all geared up towards the 12th session where the individual will then pitch their business concept to a panel of real investors.

  • The 11 master-class sessions as part of the Academy are –
    • Idea Formation
    • Branding
    • Networking
    • Research
    • Management
    • Sales
    • Finance
    • Marketing
    • Legal
    • Preparing for investment
    • Preparing to pitch
  • After each master-class session, we conduct 1-1 Business Clinics with the delegates to contextual the master-class with their individual business ideas.
  • The master-classes lead up a pitching event where the delegates present their ideas to local businesses and investors – after the pitching event, a facilitated networking session is held
  • Spark will invite a range of funding organizations, private investors and ongoing support agencies to attend the pitch event.
  • We can also deliver a 1 or 2 day intensive Enterprise workshop where the same aims and objectives are achieved

We have delivered this programme and these sessions on behalf of Housing Associations, YMCA, Universities, Colleges and Local Authorities.  We can provide a project success / outcome report on request.
