In association with RMA – The Royal Marines Charity

This is an opportunity for service personnel, Veterans, and partners to explore their ideas for, and viability of, potential new businesses.

The event will be held virtually and at intervals, attendees will be split into breakout rooms chaired by Heropreneurs Mentors in order to facilitate one-to-one discussion and advice. In registering for this event, you commit to 2 sessions:

  • Session 1 – Thursday 27th May, 10:00-12:30
  • Session 2 – Thursday 10th June, 10:00-12:30

This is a valuable opportunity for military, ex-military, and military partner future entrepreneurs to establish the viability of their business proposals, the considerations start-ups must take into account, and the courses of action required for them to achieve their goals.

HighGround Virtual Rural Week 2021

The Virtual Rural Week (VRW) was developed in 2020 in the face of COVID-19 restrictions

Many aspects of a Rural Week, visits, hands-on and face-to-face interaction clearly cannot be replicated online. However, some subjects are already delivered by a presentation during a Rural Week and certain aspects of other subjects could be adapted to present online. Representing circa 70% of Land-Based Sector employment and self-employment opportunities.

A VRW typically runs from Monday to Wednesday three sessions each morning with breaks between each session. The presenters have supported the Rural Week programme previously so understand the information and detail Service Leavers and Veterans require. Equally they will take questions and provide advice.
