StartUp lessons from #VSULive in Birmingham
Is there a better way to be inspired, motivated and excited than spending an evening chatting to entrepreneurs who are on a mission to launch their own business? We doubt it.
The #VSULive tour hit Birmingham last night and 100 entrepreneurs came down to network, share ideas and make connections. This pretty much confirmed what we already knew - there’s a buzz around entrepreneurship in England like never before and there’s a huge pool of smart people in need of funding to make their business ideas happen.
The aim of these #VSULive events is to inspire and offer some advice to people who are at the beginning stages of launching a business, so we invited some of our favourite entrepreneurs, who are running successful startups already to share their ideas on how to create a sustainable business and become your own boss. Here are a few key take aways from each one.
