Global Entrepreneurship Week - 2014 launch
Come and join the VSU team and leading figures for the official launch of Global Entrepreneurship Week – the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is the week where all your hard work running your own business is celebrated; a week of businesses all over the globe coming together to network, learn, and shout about the great things that their businesses are doing. Whether you’re the head of several well-established companies or have just started on the road to entrepreneurship, it’s for everyone – those working out of their parents’ spare bedrooms and the Richard Bransons of the world alike.
And we’re kicking the most inspirational week of the year off with a bang on 17th November at The Escalator – a vibrant accelerator community of startups, investors and innovators, bringing together the brightest business minds and the most inventive new businesses. Virgin Startup has teamed up with Youth Business International, Barclays, Startup Direct and UnLtd for the official launch of Global Entrepreneurship week, and we want you to be a part of it too.
Featuring speakers that include key government figures and Dragon James Caan, it’s going to be an amazing opportunity to listen and network with leading entrepreneurs. Learn about your funding options, find out how a mentor can help take your business to the next level, and network with other businesses.
The panels will cover three vital topics for entrepreneurs – mentor support, how to make your ideas reality, and funding your business. How can mentoring work for you, and how can you make the most of a mentoring relationship? How can you tell if your idea is good enough, and what can you do with it? What are the options for funding your business, and which are the best ones for you?
In such a melting pot of entrepreneurial creativity, the sky’s the limit – it’s an invaluable opportunity to meet with people who could really make a difference to your business, and learn about ways to grow.
