Boot Camp challenge for young student entrepreneurs

Have your say

Budding business brains are facing a frantic four days of action from today - at a graduate entrepreneurs Boot Camp being held in a South Yorkshire village.

Students from Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam universities are among 30 young people at the residential event being held at The Stables, in High Melton near Doncaster.

The annual event seeks to support students and graduates who are keen to become self-employed and set up their own businesses.

Sheffield-born neo-natal nurse Marie Anne Kelly hopes Boot Camp will help her and Hallam University student Eleanor Byrne to develop their premature babywear venture, Stork.

Marie Anne, aged 29. said: “Boot Camp will provide an important opportunity to take our business idea one big step closer to becoming a reality.”
