Upgrade Yourself – enterprise & employment

Are you interested in running your own business?

Upgrade Yourself – enterprise and employment, is a fun and inspiring enterprise, employment and learning programme for 18-30 year olds. During autumn we we will be hosting a range of workshops, events and mentoring sessions for people who want to be their own boss. Build your business in time for Christmas trading with a pop-up market event along the South Bank.

Come along and learn how to:

  • Create market strategies for your small business
  • Maximise sales and set up a successful market stall
  • Present strong pitches to potential funders
  • Develop pricing strategies for small businesses.
  • Produce a business plan

Join us in the neighbourhood centre and start the journey to your dream job.

This project is also supported by Battersea Power Station Foundation and local companies who have been volunteering their time to provide mentoring. One of these companies is Gate One, a local award-winning digital and business transformation consultancy.

Upgrade Yourself Enterprise feedback:

The course was informative and motivating. There were plenty of insightful sessions on setting up a business from scratch and the opportunity to think outside of the box. I am now more equipped and confident about my business idea and moving forward.”

“The pop-up market at Gabriel’s Wharf was a successful event to say the least! The opportunity to showcase my product was priceless. I had a shower of positive feedback which boosted my product confidence even more. There was an equal amount of networking and sales. I also spoke with a contact who is looking to place a bulk order for a large catering company. All I can say is, this has paved the way for my business to grow. It made me realise how much I do want this business to work and also realised that people equally enjoy and want my product. I will take all that I have learnt both in theory and practice to create a practical, productive business in the future.”
