DMU and NatWest Resilient Business Models workshop
Location: Zoom Details to be sent to attendees

About this Event



DMU Innovation Centre and NatWest have teamed up to deliver a series of workshops to help businesses navigate through the Covid-19 situation.

It’s one thing to build a business that meets customer needs enough to generate value to be viable. However, in the new economic reality of the Covid-19 situation new and existing businesses need to be viable and resilient.

Resilient business models can quickly pivot into new markets if your core is impacted and approach risk in a very different way.

As this is new territory the workshop will explore how tried and tested methods of business planning can be applied to your businesses to make them more resilient.

In this workshop you will get the opportunity to

- Learn about pivoting strategies

- Learn how to adapt your existing business model

- Explore opportunities to become more resilient
