Hatchers Solicitors LLP and Young Britain held the first of three Start-up boot camps at Hatchers’ Welsh Bridge premises yesterday evening (20 March 2014). 11 entrepreneurs attended with a huge range of ideas.
Fay Easton, project manager at Young Britain led the session and was accompanied by Marketing Coordinator at Hatchers, Jessie Hinds.
“The evening was brilliant, Fay was captivating as always and we got to hear all of the exciting business ideas that the young men and women brought with them. I hope that the event helped and encouraged them to follow their dream, there’s no time like the present!”
