Start your business.

Countdown to Launch is a 5 day program designed to help you take a business idea and get it ready for launch. This is the 7th year we have delivered the program and we are confident that it will really help you to launch your business or prepare you for work as a freelancer. Previous participants have gone on to launch successful businesses, gain equity investment and kick-started successful careers.

Countdown to Launch is free to attend for Cardiff Met students and graduates. In 2019 we are running Countdown to Launch twice; From the 13th May - 17th May on our Cyncoed Campus and again on the 10th June - 14th June on the Llandaff Campus. As we have a lot to pack in each day is pretty much from 9am - 5pm.

Once again there are three trajectories to ensure that the content is tailored for your ambition. Choose your trajectory now.
