Global Entrepreneurship Week

November 12, 2020

16 November – 20 November

In light of Global Entrepreneurship Week, we at Bright Red Triangle have put together a list of some of the events that we thought might interest you.

Life’s a Pitch – Collaboration between Bright Red Triangle and RBS

If you haven’t got a clear 60-second pitch, you could be missing out on opportunities to grow your business every day. Even in such uncertain times, you never know when the opportunity to support others may arise, so it is important to be able to explain your business quickly and simply.

Join the NatWest Business Builder team as we break the 60-second or ‘elevator’ pitch down into its component parts.
