Generate a list of possible business ideas
- Evaluate the ideas generated
- Develop a personal action plan
Know how, and where to go, to take the idea further
Bright Ideas enables the user to embark on their enterprise journey and guides them through the initial stages of developing a business idea, in three modules: ‘Do you have an idea?’; ‘Do you have the skills?’; and, ‘Where next?’.
Bright Ideas facilitates the learning experience through an interactive series of information slides, and audio guides that prompt thoughts and actions on the part of the user. There are 20 questions to help develop a business idea, and quizzes to test the participant’s understanding and entrepreneurial aptitude. Candidates are provided with their own journal to record their thoughts and actions as their business ideas form and evolve, and there are links to downloadable sources of useful business information, advice, tips and signposting to additional enterprise support. Case studies of successful young businesses supported by Shell LiveWIRE provide the inspiration for the user to emulate their success, and participants are given their own personal action planner to help them plan the next steps on their enterprise journey.To visit Bright Ideas e-Learning zone go to:
