Artisan Business Start-Up Certificate - Module 1: You & Your Business

Dream of owning your own artisan business? Make it happen by gaining clarity and direction.

By joining Module 1 of our Artisan Business Start-Up Certificate, you will examine the foundations of your business concept in a real environment among like-minded people.

Tutor Yvonne O’Donovan is the School’s Head of Business and Enterprise and has nurtured many food business start-ups over the years. With her expert guidance and deep understanding of business, she will equip you with the knowledge, confidence and drive to get your idea off the ground.

The FDQ accredited course has been specifically designed for those planning an artisan food or drinks business and those who are already trading and wish to expand or diversify.

It is important that you attend Module 1 so we can get under the skin of you and your business. It is possible to mix and match the syllabus to fit your individual requirements and availability, however we highly recommend taking all five modules in sequential order to gain the Artisan Business Start-Up Certificate.

MODULE 1: YOU & YOUR BUSINESS

During this three-day module, you will explore the foundations of your own artisan food business in greater detail. Working with Yvonne and alongside future food entrepreneurs, you will examine:

  • You, your team and the industry
  • Why are you doing this?
  • Defining your core values
  • Your appetite for risk
  • Your people and the role they’ll play
  • The shape, structure and trends of your specialist food sector
  • Your essential focus areas.
