What our customers say about us
“The Business Bootcamp we ran in partnership with Acorn Enterprise gave our students a real flavour of what running your own business is like.
Over the course of the one-day event, there were inspiring speakers, including St Andrews alumni, and challenging workshops that enabled the students to develop a more entrepreneurial mindset and further their business ideas.
I can recommend working with Acorn Enterprise".

Bonnie Hacking - Enterprise Adviser
"Acorn Enterprise co-designed and co-delivered a successful 3 day Business Bootcamp with us.
We got great support from them when we were designing the programme and benefited from their experience and insights into what works when inspiring students to think about starting their own business. The personnel were enthusiastic, fun and inclusive. The materials used on the Bootcamp were fresh and relevant, and worked well in motivating and educating the students.
It is well worth working with Acorn Enterprise, as they bring a lot to the party!"
