Welcome > Events > Virgin StartUp Meetup – Bit on the side: how to launch a business while working




5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


1 Canon's Road


If you can come up with a business idea, quit your job the next day and launch the business the day after then this event isn’t for you. For the rest (and this should be virtually everyone) who need to keep the day job to pay for the business idea as well as important things like food and water then this event will help you work out how and why you should launch a business while working full time.

We will be bringing together entrepreneurs who launched businesses while working to reveal their strategies for doing so and also people who are still running a business while working full-time to give you their tips for how they manage it. Expect to uncover online resources that can help you, little hacks for getting things done quickly and how to make sure your boss is on side.

This event is delivered for Virgin Startup by Business West who are the delivery partner for the South West of England.
