Brain Train World is on board with Train Chartering

Train Chartering is supplying the train for Nick Holme's Brain Train World, which will allow selected entrepreneurs to present their business ideas to invited investors during journeys between London & Edinburgh and at a conference centre in Edinburgh in April 2007.

Brain Train World will shortly be sending invitations to people worldwide, suggesting that they take part in this unique experience, which may turn their dreams of running their own business into reality.

In April 2007, the private First Class train departs London en route for Edinburgh with 250 handpicked entrepreneurs and investors. All the entrepreneurial guests will have the desire to make a difference to their own lives and to turn their dreams into reality. A competition is being held on board to find the overall best business idea, as well as marrying up entrepreneurs with investors. The winning idea will receive guaranteed £50,000 (around $97,500 or €74,150) funding as well as potential investment from the onboard investors. Aspiring entrepreneurs should register their interest now via the Brain Train World website

Simon Pielow from Train Chartering says "Nick Holme's Brain Train World will naturally intrigue anyone with an entrepreneurial flair. The train is perfect for developing relationships; having direct access to investors will fire the imagination of entrepreneurs worldwide."
