The Business Coaching sessions are an introduction to what it's like to be your own boss and help you develop your idea into a sustainable business.

If you haven’t engaged with USE and our Evolve programme of support before, you’ll need to come along to a group business coaching session.  Once you’ve been to these you can then access further support from our in house mentors via the Evolve programme.

Our group business coaching can be used to support you as you iron out technicalities, or to fill that empty spot in your brain where you think business knowledge ought to be. The first step is to come into the zone and chat to one of our interns about your idea, who will then be able to book you onto your first session.

There are three sessions in this series and they are led by Sheffield City Council’s ‘Business Sheffield’ team, and involve up to ten participants.  The first group session is held at USE for our students and graduates but you can also book onto the first (and subsequent) sessions at the Town Hall in Sheffield.

In a group session you’ll explore what it’s like to be your own boss, and additionally will have the chance to discuss your idea and how it can develop. It’s also a great opportunity to connect with other students and graduates who are starting out in business, just like you; who knows, you might even be able to collaborate.
