This year, Entrepreneurship Week (running from 18 to 22 November 2013) will coincide with Global Entrepreneurship Week|. If you are thinking of starting-up your own business, need some help with your business plan, have an idea that you want to chat about or are just curious about start-ups, why not get involved to find out what is required to succeed as an Entrepreneur!
This year, we are running a series of workshops which will give you the information you need to know about being self-employed and start-ups, no matter what business or sector you are aiming for. Each workshop is themed to help you understand the different elements you need to think if self-employment is a road that you would like to travel down!
At the end of the week, we are holding our first Innovation Centre Day at the Careers Library (Macadam Building, Strand Campus). Experts will be on hand to help answers questions, provide advice, give their opinions or just share their experiences with you. You can book to do a Mock Business Pitch Presentation (Dragon’s Den style!) with an expert, and we will have additional resources about entrepreneurship and start-ups. So if you are looking for somewhere to start working on business plan or would like to chat to someone about your ideas, drop by!
