Just 4 weeks to go until our first student event of the new school year - EntrepreneurLIVE! 2012.
This year we visit:
London (Fulham Broadway) on 1 October 2012 Birmingham (Star City) on 2 October 2012 Manchester (Salford Quays) on 3 October 2012
The event will follow a similar format to the one which has proved so popular with teachers and students in the last two years. Students will get the opportunity to hear from a superb selection of entrepreneurs who will tell their story, provide insights highly relevant to every business studies course and then, most importantly, take questions from our student audience.
We’ve lined up a superb team of speakers for the three events who we’re sure the students will love - and gain so much from too!
Fraser Doherty - Founder of SuperJam - one of the best-known and loved young entrepreneurs the UK has ever produced - and with good reason! Fraser will take students through “the next chapter” talking about his new product Superhoney and his strategy of expanding to the USA
Vincent McKevitt - describes himself as the “Top Tosser” and the man behind the restaurant business Tossed. A fantastic entrepreneurial story from a smart, switched on young businessman
James Eder - The Beans Group - James is the entrepreneur behing studentbeans.com and is also now doing a lot of work with Startup Britain - the Government-supported programme to encourage more startups
Mike Longthorne - one of the three founders of the Wedge Welly business that starred in Dragons Den. Mike is the marketing genius behind Wedge Welly - not to be missed. Rachel Bridge - perhaps the UK’s leading expert on enterprise and startups - and a huge supporter of enterprise education. Rachel has met hundreds of the UK’s most successful entrepreneur and, by drawing on real life examples, she is the ideal person to talk about the common traits they share and look at what we can learn from them.
We’ll also be running the highly popular Student Enterprise Challenge where student teams pitch their solution to a business challenge, competing to win some attractive cash prizes!
Details of the Student Enterprise Challenge for 2012 are now available here
Student places at the event cost £20 (+VAT). Bookings for EntrepreneurLIVE! 2012 can now be made using this online form
You can read a report from the 2011 event by Stoke Sixth Form College who brought students to Manchester (Salford Quays)
We do hope that you and your students will be able to join us.
