Fireside chat with Steve Blank (10-11am)
Steve Blank is an Adjunct Professor at Stanford and co-founder of the Gordian Knot Center for National Security Innovation. He has been described as the Father of Modern Entrepreneurship.
Credited with launching the Lean Startup movement and the curriculums for the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps and Hacking for Defense and Diplomacy, he’s changed how startups are built; how entrepreneurship is taught; how science is commercialized, and how companies and the government innovate.
Steve is the author of The Four Steps to the Epiphany and The Startup Owner’s Manual which revolutionized how startups were built. His Harvard Business Review cover story redefined how large companies can innovate at speed.
Join us to hear from Steve on his experiences.
Oxford Seed Fund’s 10th Year Anniversary Gathering (12:30-3:30pm)
We are excited to invite you to join us in celebrating the Oxford Seed Fund’s 10th anniversary.
Over the last 10 years Oxford Seed Fund has invested in 24 companies and deployed over £515,000 in capital. The fund has had nearly 100 student directors run the programme in the same period, and is arguably the most successful student-led VC fund in Europe with VC-education at its heart.
At this 10-year mark we’ll reflect on the progress of the portfolio companies and discuss what it takes to break into VC today, with events hosted by the MBA team and with guest speakers from the VC industry. We’ll also ensure we take time for networking and cake.
We hope you will join us to celebrate this special occasion.
