Event details

NTU Enterprise wants to hear from local businesses, students and graduate entrepreneurs as we build a community of enterprise and innovation across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

In our next session as an enterprise community, we will be focusing on the topic of franchising. What is it? How can we apply this to our own businesses? And is it really the right move for us?

Join the Enterprise team, along with our guest Fiona Boswell, for this digital session where you can find out exactly what franchising would mean for your organisation. We will discuss the ins and outs of the topic, before opening the event up for guests to submit their questions for our panel to answer.
