Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) launched the Entrepreneurial Academy in 2017 to support entrepreneurs in the region accelerate their business growth. The Entrepreneurial Academy provides a suite of one-day, practice-based workshops delivered by experts with hands-on experience of running a business and supporting entrepreneurs. The Academy is a unique initiative to help you develop critical skills and equip you with the structures, tools and techniques to implement the learning in your business. You will also gain from working alongside other entrepreneurs and learning from their experiences.
During 2018-20, the Entrepreneurial Academy will be rolled out across the Highlands and Islands providing you with the opportunity to learn new skills or refresh existing skills in your local area.
The workshops provide you with the chance to drill into the detail of the subject as it relates to your company or social enterprise. With ‘Chatham House Rules’ in place, you can feel comfortable troubleshooting your business challenges with the support of an expert provider and with the input of the other entrepreneurs in the room.
Participants will leave each workshop with a deeper understanding of the topic and a toolkit or plan to turn this knowledge into action.
