Immediately after the Bootcamp, the ECR will spend 11 weeks contacting and holding online and where possible, face-to-face meetings with target companies and organisations to test the business model. Contacts will be both nationally and internationally.

The ECR must be employed full-time on the programme for the duration until the last date of the Options Roundabout.

The ECR is required to attend regular teleconferences and provide progress reports.
