Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship - Business Idea and Start-Up Clinic


Business-Idea-Clinic-light-bulb-ImageIn 2014 the HCfE launched the Business Idea and Start-Up Clinic, a service that affords students and recent alumni the opportunity to obtain advice about their business idea.

The Clinic, which opened its door in October 2014, offers students a 30 minute session with an experienced entrepreneur, who will provide guidance to students on their business idea or newly formed business and help them determine viability for development.

Students will receive practical advice on how to go about evaluating an idea or business within the lean start-up framework using tools like the 'seven domain analysis'.

The Clinic will help students develop their business idea or new business which in turn will help their coursework and lead them to apply to the IDEAFEST Student Business Idea Competition.

Ezlyn Barents, a former Henley MBA student, found that the business clinic helped her, saying: "Thank you for the valuable advice to fine tune my business idea."
