School for Startups is the inspiration of serial entrepreneur and Dragon's Den investor Doug Richard. Through a series of highly interactive one-day business seminars Doug and his team provide intensive training for budding entrepreneurs and business owners. In Doug's own words: "The aim is to increase the number of innovative small businesses in the UK, to provide them with world class business advice and to help them succeed".

Each seminar is presented by Doug Richard or another highly experienced entrepreneur, supported by special 'guest' appearances from successful entrepreneurs. A popular guest speaker is Alex van Someren, co-founder of nCypher, a data security company which sold last year for over 50 million.

Far from being dry, business events, School for Startups seminars are designed to be fully interactive, incorporating 'live' case studies, video examples, Q&A sessions, plus of course, an element of Dragons Den. As Doug Richard says: "The goal is to teach participants the questions they need to ask themselves and then equip them to find the right answers. There is also a strong element of motivational support that encourages innovation and entrepreneurialism."
