What is Spotlighting Getting Started?
Our Spotlighting Getting Started programme helps start-ups to put what they have learnt during Getting Started Online, a one-week introduction to business course, into action. Through practical assignments, participants learn how to photograph their work, speak live to the camera and prepare their pieces for our annual Spotlighting Getting Started exhibition.
