Enterprising Wokingham

On Friday 11th April I gave out certificates to a group of energetic and enterprising people in Wokingham Town Hall. They had just completed a 12 week course, providing them with practical training to run their own businesses. Last Friday they each presented their business idea to a Dragon’s Den, pitching for some financial assistance as they move on to the next stage and start trading.

Wokingham Borough has been a sponsor of the scheme. David Less, the Leader of the Council , spoke enthusiastically about what has been achieved so far. I was pleased to see so many people full of confidence and keen to get on with establishing their businesses. I wish them all well with winning clients and moving on to the next phase.
