Pearson College London is an educational institution that provides undergraduate, postgraduate, apprenticeships and short courses. All of their courses are designed to accelerate students’ careers and expand students’ horizons.
Pearson College London is part of Pearson PLC, the world’s leading learning company. They are a multinational publishing and education company listed on the London and New York Stock Exchanges and a constituent of the FTSE 100 index.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Pearson College London identified the need to support students and the general public remotely with valuable tools, tips and resources to upskill and develop their own business ideas during lockdown.
We worked with Pearson College London to design an Online Accelerator Programme to support people stuck at home – and possibly furloughed – so that they could make the most of their time by exploring the launch of a new venture on aside.
The programme should have guided participants throughout the entire Venture Building process, including validating business ideas on the market, identifying the right customers, getting traction for an idea, learning basic finance and accounting or pitching to take the big leap.
