Entrepreneurs Durham would like to welcome you back to Durham for the start (well mid-January) of the New Year and a new term. We hope that you have settled in and are enjoying the snow.
We also are looking forward to inviting you to our upcoming events. This term is very busy on the event front. What are these events going to be and when you ask?
Our first event of the term will be Durham student Entrepreneurs held at The Library (formerly Varsity) at 7.30pm on 20th January. Come along to hear quick fire chats with six student entrepreneurs. The event will be a chance for you hear about their experiences as well as a chance to ask questions over drinks.
Entrepreneurs Durham’s biggest event is held this term.
Kickstart Weekend (20th – 22nd February) lasts 36 hours and is an opportunity for you to build a business and pitch it to six judges in five minutes. Although this may sound a little intimating, don’t worry. You will be in a team of three to four people who together will come up with a business idea and develop it. You will be supported by several mentors over the weekend. The weekend is for anyone. From any discipline and level of business experience. If you are interested in getting more information or buying your ticket then please go to the website: http://www.durhamkickstartweekend.com/about.html
So there you have a little snippet of what is to come. Another exciting feature is that Entrepreneurs Durham are going to launch a regular blog. The aim is to update you on our events, interviews with entrepreneurs, letting you know of opportunities with in the North East as well as giving some hints and tips for setting up your own business. However if there is anything you think we are not writing about and should be, then let us know!
