Global Entrepreneurship Week, 16-22 November

Friday 30 October 2015

Stand Up Start Up

Tuesday 17 November, 6pm, QUBE – room 3.43 in the Francis Bancroft Building, Mile End campus

Come along to an informal networking event to hear entrepreneurs from local start-ups talk about how they started their journey. Run in collaboration with QM Entrepreneurs.

Lean Product Management

Wednesday 18 November, 2-5pm, QUBE – room 3.43 in the Francis Bancroft Building, Mile End campus

Often founders of start-ups struggle with converting their ideas into a tangible product. It can be difficult for non-tech founders to articulate their product requirements well enough for a technology team to understand. In this workshop, Maulik Sailor from Innovify will talk about the process of getting your ideas refined to a level that can be worked on by any development team to deliver the product as you need it to be. The workshop will teach techniques and tools required for you to create a lean product using agile methodologies.

Be Your Own Boss

Thursday 19 November, 1-2.30pm, venue TBC

Working for someone else isn't everyone's cup of tea. By becoming a freelancer or working for yourself you'll be joining the 172,000 people between 16-24 who have taken control of their own career path.

This session will discuss the benefits, challenges, expectations, practical processes and recommendations of being your own boss - giving you a clearer idea of whether it is the right path for you, how to start, and how to succeed!

3 Day Startup (3DS)

The idea of 3 Day Startup (3DS) is to start a technology company over the course of three days. The event will give you hands-on entrepreneurial skills in an informal atmosphere.

The idea is to work in a space for three full days, with 45 students from across London universities from a wide range of backgrounds. Food and drinks will be provided along with access to top-notch entrepreneurs and investors. The best ideas for startups will be chosen during the day one brainstorming session, and a minimal prototype will be released by the evening of day three. The goal is to build enough momentum among a network of motivated people to sustain the company beyond day three.

More than 100 3DS programs on five continents have given rise to 56 companies receiving $19 million in funding. 33 companies from 3DS have been accepted to accelerators such as Y Combinator, TechStars and 500 Startups.
