Pop Up Business School in Croydon
14 Oct 2016
Following a successful pilot with the Oracle team, which was featured on the BBC, the Pop Up Business team has come to Croydon.
Funded via the Croydon Community plan, which focuses on enterprise and with the support of the asset team, Pop Up has taken a unit in the Whitgift Centre.
Pop Up Business Schools support local residents to convert their business ideas into reality within a live trading site. The 183 participants that took part completed a course covering social media, finance, marketing, networking and other business topics over a two week period. The initiative is also funded by Croydon Council and local housing associations.
The BBC recently reviewed how some of the Oracle participants got on, 6 months after the Oracle pilot - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2FtWccg3VA
