The University of Worcester is launching three new programmes in 2017 to support you; starting a business, incubating a business and the growth of a business.
principium – summer startup bootcamp
Starts: June 2017
The summer business startup programme is aimed at those students or graduates who want to start a business. Each person will be supported over a ten week period to start their business with a range of support tailored to ensure they have the skills and knowledge to take advantage of the opportunities. This programme is part funded by the European Commission’s, ESIF fund.

incrementum – business scale up programme
Starts: February 2017
The independent Scale-Up Report on UK Economic Growth 2014 identified a number of key barriers that businesses must conquer if they are going to achieve their growth ambitions. While high-growth SMEs generate 20% of all jobs growth in the UK, recent evidence from OECD shows that the UK has the lowest proportion of high-growth SMEs: the biggest problem for the UK is not in starting companies, but in growing them.
If you want to grow your business in 2017, this is for you!!
The University of Worcester Business School and its partners will deliver over a series of one day events, support sessions and mentoring giving you the support you need as a business owner to overcome these barriers.
