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

APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE EVERY WEDNESDAY FROM 4PM

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."

The Clinic is led by an experienced entrepreneur, Jurek Sikorski, with other HCfE faculty also feeding in.

Contact a.j.baker@henley.ac.uk to book an appointment and provide the following:

- A full CV or work biography, outlining your life and employment experience
- A summary of your business idea/newly formed business and why you believe it can be successful (roughly 250-500 words, or one side of A4)
- A list of three or four questions that you would like answered about the viability of your business idea/newly formed business
