The 5-9 Club

The 5-9 Club is a 9 week after hours business course which takes you through the fundamental things you need to know about to make your business idea a success. You’ll be taught by industry experts alongside likeminded people in a supportive and fun environment.

This 9 week course will run one evening a week from 5pm till 9pm, and will teach you about:

  • Idea Generation

  • Marketing
  • Branding
  • Putting your Business Online
  • Business Planning
  • Pitching your idea

We’ll also provide you with essential funding and legal advice.

On the final week, all participants will be invited to share their idea with experts to gain industry insight, professional contacts,  positive feedback and guidance to leave the course with.


UnLtd finds, funds and supports social entrepreneurs – enterprising people with solutions that change our society for the better. We were formed in 2002 by seven organisations who believed that social entrepreneurs had a much bigger contribution to make to our economy and society. We were among the first to back individuals with their own ideas to create social good.
