Size Up Your Idea – Why You? Why now?
Do you struggle to make the time for on-line learning but want to evaluate your digital business idea? Join us for all or part of the six section course we will be running over 6 weeks.
Size up your idea. Is it genius, or is it a dud? This course will give you tools and frameworks to develop novel and agile business propositions that are focused on real customers with real needs.
How? Book a space at the GROW training room, bring your lap top or tablet and let you peers keep you on target with completing the course. Can’t commit to six fridays? No problem, combine it with home based study.
Or contact Louize to book your place…

CROWD FUNDING TO GIVE DIGITAL ACCESS TO LEARNING
Now while many of us are lucky enough to own our own computer, there are plenty of people that are not in that position who could absolutely benefit from the training that is on offer. So while they have 20 places on the course, let’s assume 10 could be filled by people who don’t have access to a laptop, PC or Mac. They don’t need to be expensive, so let’s allow a budget of £250 per machine and GROW would like to have 10 available for people to borrow… giving us a target of £2,500 to make this a reality…
If you think this course is a great idea & or you feel you would like to support GROW in providing laptops for general use, then please make a donation via GROW’s CrowdPatch page >>>
GROW are happy to gift desk space for donations, so we have £20 for a day, £50 a week or £150 a month GROW Pass!
