Blooming Founders, whose founder Lu Li we chatted with last year, has a great selection of events which are definitely worth checking out. 












The Federation of Small Businesses (The FSB) has a huge number of events taking place across the country, use this link to find out what's happening near you.


Also, international community members based in the Caribbean and South Africa may want to check out the Branson Centre for Entrepreneurship which is one of the projects from our VOOM 2018 partners Virgin Unite.










We know that these are just a few of the events offering support for those starting out in business, so it'd be great to hear about the great training courses you've been on, or are planning to go to. Let us know in the comments.

@EmmaDinglethis is great in terms of support, however the Virgin Masterclasses are extremely London focused with only 1 being provided in Edinburgh.  I'm sure if this was rolled out nationally it would prove very useful and more inclusive for other areas of the UK.

Hi @PlanningHouse

It may be worth contacting the Virgin Start Up team, they do take some of their workshops and training on the road and I'm sire they would be interested to know if there's demand for this in other areas.

Many thanks @EmmaDingle I contacted them in February and they said that the process of devising what this would look like in the regions was being undertaken and to  keep a look out on our website in the coming months.
