Today I spent 2 hours manning the nibusinessinfo.co.uk stand at the Belfast City Council Be Enterprising event.
Throughout the course of the event I advised 4 people from a variety of backgrounds regarding starting up their business. These were people from law, sports science and fashion design backgrounds who were linked by their ideas for web/digital businesses. All were non-technical but had subject matter expertise from other industries that they would like to capitalise on. All ideas had global application and potential.
The conversations all progressed to the topic of technology and how they would realise those ideas. As well as signposting them to our own IT & E-commerce theme on the site I asked them if they were aware of DC and if they had tried networking in those circles. All hadn't.
Members of DC, as people who could help those four folk make their business a reality what advise would you have for them regarding approaching yourselves to make that happen?
