Young budding entrepreneurs with business ideas will benefit from meeting experts and role-models at a special Big Ideas event being held in Pembrokeshire College on February 1st.
A full timetable of workshops and experiences have been designed to take participants through some of the questions and decisions that will need to be made to get a business idea off the ground.
There will also be an opportunity to meet young business mentors and find our how the Welsh Assembly can help people under the age of 25 wishing to set up their own business.
Karen Neville, the Colleges enterprise co-ordinator, said: "
This is an exciting event for young people in west Wales with a business idea to come and find out how to set up a business and move it forward".
This is the first of two events being hosted in Pembrokeshire by the Welsh Assembly. A follow-up event to get started is being held a month later in Milford Haven.
The follow-up event is on March 3rd at the College’s Cedar Court facility in Milford Haven.
Business champions include:
Cardigan-based Ben Giles who took his window cleaning operation from a one-man service to a specialist company with a £900,000 turnover.
Carmarthenshire sculptor Clare Ferguson-Walker, who has a thriving workshop and online art gallery.
