The 'Create' workshop will focus on product design and development and will be held in FabLab in the Ashton Centre, north Belfast. The aim of the workshop on Tuesday 12 April is to develop a product prototype for business, gain skills in product design and have an opportunity to sample 3D printing.

The 'Activate' workshop will help people develop a mini business plan. It will take place in the Work West Social Economy Village on Tuesday 26 April. It is aimed at entrepreneurs who have a business idea and want to gain a better insight into how they can understand their customers and competitors.

It will be followed by another Activate workshop on 17 May from 6pm to 9pm in the City East Business Centre, east Belfast.
