IMPACT30 has been really helpful for improving time management and setting goals I need to meet every three weeks. My business is slowly progressing and it's exciting to see it finally coming together - largely through meeting these goals!

The induction day was really beneficial, as you meet other like-minded people on the same path. What’s great is that everyone is at different stages - some behind, some in front of you, and that means you have something in common with everyone. Having people in their own start-up businesses who you can talk with is also great, as you are all in the same boat and understand what each other is going through. You can chat through ideas, see each other progressing and give help along the way. The induction day was ideal because it really made you go back to the bare bones of your idea - the roots where everything should stem from.

I would recommend anyone to do Impact30 as it is a great way to have support when you are working alone. It makes you feel as if you’re progressing when you feel stagnant, and you have knowledge when you feel lost. In terms of the application - don't worry about looking pretty, just be yourself and tell the truth about your ideas - and everyone will love it!
