NatWest and DMU Innovation Centre Business Builder Online Restart  


After a short break because of Covid-19 we are back to restart the NatWest and DMU Business Builder programme as an online event series.

You might have already worked your way through the online course content but we are now in a very different reality. The tools and techniques that you have learnt to discover your customers needs, develop the mindset to accept feedback and build products and services that underpin viable businesses are all still relevant. However, the context has changed. Your customers are different now, there are new challenges to overcome and a viable business plan before Covid-19 might not be viable anymore.

That’s why we have developed a new series of online workshops and events that applies your previous learning to this new context.
