What BAC attendees had to say:

It was a good 101 on business setup. There's a lot to go through so served as an introductory lesson with pointers on where to go


The presenter was very practical and shared generously his experience. He was enthusiastic and stayed on after the scheduled time. Good structure and intro. Really emphasised the need for the market research and doing a Business Plan.


Everything was very well organised. The room, the presentation, every small detail. It was even better that what I expected. I will definitely recommended it.


Very engaging and informative. I felt I really learned a lot from the meeting. The tutor was very helpful.
