Business Advice

UCL Advances business advisors can provide students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and recent alumni with business support to start, develop and progress their businesses. The advisors offer impartial, confidential advice that is grounded in practicality and based on pragmatic no-nonsense guidance that reflects the students’ personal aspirations and goals. Whether the business is in the planning stage or has been operating for a number of years, the business advisors can probably help.

Advice can be provided on, amongst other things, business planning, cash-flow forecasting, competition analysis, marketing and promotion. The advisors have access to contacts and resources, and knowledge of initiatives such as competitions, mentoring, funding programmes and investment opportunities.

The UCL Advances Business Advisors can help avoid the pitfalls and traps that await the unwary. They understand the seemingly labyrinthine processes that are part of setting up a business, are good at listening and experienced at identifying the problems that are inherent in developing a business idea.

So if you have a business idea, or have been running a business for a while and want a fresh perspective, or need a sounding board or a (metaphorical) shoulder to cry on, why not contact one of our student business advisors?

To request a meeting, complete the Business Idea Form and email it to sba@ucl.ac.uk.
