March 2021 Update:  Please note that demand is currently very high for our pre-start bootcamps.  As a result, spaces are now limited and filling up fast.  

In some cases, there may be a delay before applicants are able to commence support on our pre-start programmes. We would still encourage you to register on the project so that eligibility requirements of our support can be ascertained and confirmed.  Our Business Advisors will be able to provide more information on likely wait times.  

Details of our forthcoming start-up bootcamps can be found here.
