From 20th – 24th June, Cardiff Metropolitan University’s Centre for Entrepreneurship ran its annual CF5 Business Bootcamp empowering students and graduates by equipping them with the tools and confidence to begin their start up journey.
The flagship event supports entrepreneurially minded students and graduates to explore self-employment and business start-up via a weeklong intensive programme of interactive workshops, activities, networking, and pitching.
