Less than three weeks to go until EntrepreneurLIVE! 2012.
We've had a fantastic response already for the event and it is likely to be heavily over-booked. If you have already made a provisional booking, please let us have your confirmed numbers asap to secure the places!
We moved this popular student event to an earlier date to better fit with the teaching of a wide range of business courses and out of the cluttered Global Enterprise Week. So for 2012 we visit London (Fulham Broadway) on 1 October 2012, Birmingham (Star City) on 2 October 2012 and finally Manchester (Salford Quays) on 3 October 2012.
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! Details further below.
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 are also running the highly popular Student Enterprise Challenge where student teams pitch their solution to a business challenge, competing to win some attractive cash prizes!
You can read a couple of excellent reports from students who attended Entrepreneur LIVE! 2011 here: from Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls and here from Stoke Sixth Form College who brought students to Manchester (Salford Quays)
