What is the PopUp Business School?

The PopUp Business School is an exciting five-day course which will show attendees practical ways to get a business idea off the ground and launch it online – without spending any money.

Founded in 2012 by Alan Donegan and Simon Paine, the partners thought that traditional approaches to starting a business, for example applying for start-up loans and having to produce business plans can put people off, who may have great ideas.

Over the last six years, the school has partnered with housing associations, universities, Jobcentre Plus and local authorities, to help start more than 1500 businesses in communities across the UK.

The team previously held an event at the Orchard Centre in Didcot, from 19 – 23 March 2018.
