Big Ideas Wales is going on tour! Whether you have a business idea already or you are simply curious about the world of self-employment, then this event is for you. Visiting locations across Wales, you will hear from business owners who have been there and done that, take part in an interactive workshop about being self-employed and have the opportunity to meet other young people with similar interests. You will leave this event with a greater understanding of what it takes to get your business started and confident in your abilities to do so with the support of Big Ideas Wales.
If you’re 25 or under and facing barriers that stop you from starting a business, looking for new opportunities, or just have a great business idea then Big Ideas Wales can help. Come along for free!
