Have you ever wondered how finance works? How do you actually buy a house or raise money to build a business?

This interactive programme will connect you with Bespoke Financial, a new and growing Finance firm built on human relationships and innovative entrepreneurship.

You will take part in practical and thought-provoking tasks to help you understand finance and entrepreneurship. From building equity to insuring and funding you will go through it all!
