Kingston University London is a public research university located within the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, in South West London, United Kingdom.
The university specialises in the arts, design, fashion, science, engineering, and business. Its roots, however, go back to the Kingston Technical Institute, founded in 1899.
As part of thew Bright Ideas competition, I’ve helped students participating to an off-site three days accelerator to refine their business ideas and put together a pitch deck telling a compelling story to investors and competition judges.
From Business Idea to Plan Masterclass, producing a compiled Lean Canvas and a clear plan with actionable next steps to validate each business idea as an outcome.
The Perfect Early Stage Pitch Deck Masterclass, producing a draft of a pitch deck compiled in class for each startup idea as an outcome.
[I’ve loved] “The challenging nature [of the masterclass]. It encouraged full understanding of the business, and allowed us to tell a story. Making everything link is a key concept and it fills me with confidence for the businesses future. Quite honestly, every tool used was new to me, and the concept behind forming the lean canvas was explained extremely well”. Kingston University student and entrepreneur
[I’ve enjoyed] “The pace, and clarity of the information being delivered. It was unpatronising, easy to understand, entertaining and useful. I really enjoyed learning about tools that you can use to organise yourself and delegate tasks. I can’t thank Davide enough for the great workshops he did. I’m feeling inspired and full of energy!”.
