YOUNG entrepreneurs will be descending on Barnsley next month for a special four-day residential event at Northern College.

They will be hoping to turn their fledgling business ideas into reality at Yorkshire’s annual graduate entrepreneurship boot camp.

About 30 students and graduates will attend the get together, where guest speakers will include Huddersfield University head of enterprise Dr Kelly Smith , business experts and other young entrepreneurs who have turned their ideas into trading businesses.

Now in its sixth year, the boot camp is hosted and organised by the Graduate Entrepreneurship Project, an initiative which encourages and support students and graduates into business and self-employment.

The event runs from Monday to Thursday, July 2 to 5.
