As part of our Global Talent Programme (GTP) our careers team has joined forces with start-up super connectors, Empact to bring their Venture Lab to BU.
At this session, you - our aspiring leaders, researchers and entrepreneurs - will have the opportunity to hear from inspiring leaders and share their real-life business challenges.
The Venture Lab is open to all BU students. For GTP postgraduate students this counts towards one core activity from the disciplined researcher badge.
Kosta - the man behind Empact, and former campaigns manager for StartUp Britain – shared his belief that: "Bournemouth is quickly emerging as a valuable part of the UK’s start-up ecosystem thanks to both recent and established initiatives available to companies of all sizes, such as Meetdraw, Silicon Beach, the Venus Awards, THIS Workspace and more”.
He continued: "We’re delighted to offer our Venture Labs to aspiring student leaders, entrepreneurs and growing start-ups at Bournemouth University, where we aim to inspire and educate students about the journeys of experienced company founders, as well as connect and support them first-hand to showcase their talent".
Open to all BU students - book your place now via Eventbrite: 18 April, Marconi lecture theatre, 2-4pm
